From Campus Technology online:

For the LMS to remain relevant in higher education, it must move beyond the classroom and integrate seamlessly with the learning opportunities presented by the web...The LMS brought the convenience of online grade books, resource distribution, and a drop box for student submissions--the utilities of academic hygiene.

Time Management: Calendars and Assignment Reminders

  • A solution to one student's dilemma...Memo to Me
Hi, Dr. Luke-

I am hoping that you might have such a thing as a schedule of assignments or something in addition to what's on the syllabus. I'm having a hard time keeping track of everything without having some kind of guide to plan out things on a calendar.

Thank You,
