  • Web based course site development – no special software needed
  • Delegation of course development to teaching assistants
  • Stringent deadline enforcement – set the absolute due date and time
  • Electronic testing and grading – no Scantron and no paper waste
  • Online gradebook – students can check their grades any time after they are posted
  • Distribute and receive electronic files, even file types blocked by email
  • Online forums encourage student participation in course discussions
