Many of my students could do work on GitHub Classroom; some got an error and had to fork a repo instead. The only ones who ended up committing changes as pull requests back were those who did the forking; the Classroom students didn’t seem to do this. I’ll dig into why, but overall, seems like just using regular repos one forks works better for now. GitHub Classroom looks like it has potential, especially as this class scales up, so I’ll check it out again next year.

PhyloMeth: Getting Trees Brian O’Meara Objectives By the end of this week, you will have: Be able to pull trees and data from online sources. Things I want you do are in bold. Install the relevant packages (see exercise). Check out https://classroom.github.com/assignment-invitations/68c7e2e5d8119a862b32417151ac505d . If you get an error, 1) let me know, 2) fork it from https://github.com/PhyloMeth/GetTrees instead.
