TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
When I was in a BA program at Cornell in the early 80's, 120 units
("credits") were required for graduation. Students knew how many credits
they had earned so far, how many credits their current courses would grant
them, whether or not they had received passing grades in their completed
courses, etc. Under those circumstances, it would be pretty hard *not* to
know if you had earned enough credits for the degree. Unit counts must be a
lot more complicated nowadays.
(75 credits completed as of June 1982)
