Ask freelancer why he's only using "manual time" and not the time tracker, because he billed for a suspiciously large amount of time for his last assignment. #cmx1course

Reworked the folder structure so the learning unit is at the top level and the instructional material type is nested within each, rather than vice versa. This should make it easier to switch up how the course is structured. #cmx1course

Went through the process of adding HTML tags to the first part of the manual's table of contents, and created a video to explain how it should be done that I can have an Upwork freelancer finish the work for me. #cmx1course

Hired a second freelancer to help me convert the official PDF manual to HTML so I can have the headings in link form, have a Back button to make it easier to navigate, etc. #cmx1course

Gave the first freelancer a several-hour-long intro to the game and what I'm trying to do so he can serve as a manager of other freelancers on my behalf and handle assignments that require greater knowledge of the project. #cmx1course
