FYI all, just found a "historical artifact" that speaks to this.  On  
the current site map:


You'll see "Activities" underneath "Tutorials".   This was meant to  
contain the project guides from the old site.   As I recall, we ran  
out of time and VPRI decided to cut the page (which is why "tutorials"  
is the only section with three sub-sections.)

We also couldn't quickly think up another word that wasn't  
"guides" (to prevent confusion with the "quick guides") and  
"tutorials" (which is the section name).

Our current thinking is such things will attach to the "courseware",  
which will show up under "tutorials".  Also, we'll someday allow PDFs  
to be attached to projects in the showcase as well.

Take care,
