Your learning facilitators, called class mates.
  A very important resource. Class members will fill various roles.
  Your class mates will give you a lot of constructive feedback
  on your agent by accepting challenges from you and 
  enticing you to buy their challenges, and making you lose money in both cases.
  For the money you have to pay, you get constructive feedback about
  what is wrong with your agent.

In addition, Bryan Chadwick and Ahmed Abdelmeged will also be involved with
the course. Over the summer, they developed the web version
of the Specker Challenge Game.

We will also use Bryan's DemeterF tool to make your
agent read and write (following a grammar), walk and process 
its world effectively.
