Wall of Assignments and other infrastructure

Wall of Assignments - 5th Quarter

At the start of every quarter, I like to lay out the "infrastructure" for all of my classes as soon as possible. This includes:
  • Building the Wall of Assignments (newest version above!)
  • Creating directories for all of my classes on my laptop to hold notes, assignments, etc.
  • Pulling down whatever course content is available on Blackboard, which can be extremely tedious
  • Setting up email directories for my classes
  • Creating Contact groups for all of my teams to make sending emails to them easier
  • Setting up rules in Outlook to autosave attachments that professors include in their emails in the right folder
Once all of the boring setup is done, I can focus on the good stuff (FarmVille...j/k).
