To Students: Simplify / Manage Your Life with Google Calendar

10/18/2012 2 comments

From time to time, some of the students can not show up in classes, miss homework deadlines, scheduled appointments, and even exams. Recently, I found most of the students didn’t use any tool to manage their schedules. They try to keep everything in their mind, and if they forget anything, then they miss it.

I have tried to send out reminders regularly. However, I realize that students should know how to manage their own schedule. Here is a technical tip to help – simply use google calendar and task to put everything in one place.

Here are some tutorial resources:
