little note on the side
First of all RichB congratulations for taking the critique from your committee seriously, not many would do that.
Great answer indeed from MJP, I would just like to add a little note on the side:

But this won't make it to your project list, even if it is a project (it has multiple steps).
In your example by the way, I wouldn't call "prepare chapter 14" a project, but the whole course would be one project (as mcogilvie does), with some next actions that could occur at the same time (for example prepare chapter 14 and grade homework chapter 13). I know there are different points of view on this one, some would call the "chapter 14 preparation" a subproject, some would indeed call it a project.
