Keeping up with Classwork

beyond a spreadsheet

Posted by Eddie Rangel on April 5, 2016

I’ve been teaching for the last 2 years. One thing that has been a pain point for me is managing my classes grades and coursework. I’ve taught in several instituations and have been a student in many more. One thing that has been conistent in my experience is the vast differences in how educators dissminate grades through out the semester.

For the last couple of years I’ve used spreadsheets which is pretty much the standard in academia. I’ve also used open source course management systems like moodle. I very much like the feature rich offering of moodle. However, I need an IT Dept. to manage it. With that said, not all of the courses I’ve taught were priveleged enough to warrent a moodle component.

I am committed to trying to fix this pain point for me and for the many part-time and full-time teachers who want more control over their courses with out the hassles of system administration.
