We have developed and supported a content management and distance learning web application for a major textbook publisher. This is an important technology to drive the sales of textbooks, provide an entry point for instructors to online education, and to match technologies with competitors.
The application is an easy-to-use class management tool that enables instructors to schedule and upload class activities and assignments, post messages, administer tests, and file the results in a grade book. Exams are automatically graded, and instructors can post their own content and personalize the look of their class home page.
