'Tis the Season for Calendars and Countdowns!

Have you looked at your calendar lately? Can you believe that Christmas is only a little over 5 weeks from now? Some radio stations are already playing Christmas music around the clock.  It seems like the Christmas season is starting earlier every year and the countdown has begun!

Well, the countdown to Christmas isn’t the only thing we have our eye on in the LearnAU team though. Did you know that there are roughly 8 weeks until the Spring 2016 classes begin?  Yes, ‘tis the season to dive in and begin getting your courses organized and prepared for the spring semester.

Don’t worry…I will try to refrain from spoofing the 12 days of Christmas, and writing a version titled “8 week till Spring Semester.” (But it practically writes itself: ”eight course copies, seven course menus, six reviewing content, FIVE DISCUSSIONS FORUMS, four assignments, three exams, two the myCourse Section and then finally a full course review!) Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

All joking aside, it can be easy to become overwhelmed by the work required to start closing out the fall semester course and begin preparing your course shells for the spring semester.  If you are looking for help in managing the workload to prepare your courses for next semester, take a look at the 8-week Course Prep Countdown Tool.  

 This tool can help you target what to work on each week leading up to the start of the spring semester. Additionally, this tools will provide you with links to access training video or print guides to assist you along the way.

If you find yourself in need of further help throughout the coming weeks, don’t hesitate to contact our team at learn-au@ashland.edu .
