Drop Box Feature Added


The Drop Box menu option is now available for use with course websites -- providing an efficient way for professors to accept written assignments/papers in any readable document format (e.g. doc, rtf, pdf, etc). Submitted papers are date and time stamped and can only be seen by a student and his/her professor. When papers are submitted a second or third time, all earlier submissions remain visible and intact. Submitted papers can only be deleted by the course administrator.  As with Journal entries, Drop Box assignments are initially labeled ?new.?  Stay tuned.  Additional Drop Box features are currently under development.

Introducing Personal Homepages


We?re pleased to announce Nfomedia has added personal web pages for both course administrators and students. To begin, click on the link Personal Homepage.

When course administrators create their personal web page, it appears at the top of the My Sites list and can serve as a portal to each professor?s courses by simply changing the URL ? for example: http://www.nfomedia.com/janesmith/.  This personal website can include a personal blog, links to all of a professor?s courses, and a range of both personal and professional activities.  

Students can also create personal web pages with links to their courses housed on Nfomedia.  Their sites can also include a personal blog and an array of personal and professional experiences.

Import Feature Added


Import content from an existing course into another course.  If you are teaching two sections of the same course, you may want to create two Nfomedia course web sites.  Once course content has been developed and entered for one of the two courses, there is no need to enter it a second time.  Simply go to 'Site Settings' and select 'Import Content.'  Nfomedia will provide you with a list of your current courses.  Select the course whose content you want to import and Nfomedia will duplicate the content (including exam question banks) for you.  This process imports content only -- NOT data (e.g. users, grades, exams, blogs, messages, announcements).
