  • 11. I found texting to be perfect. It allowed quick access to professors without the social intrusion that could arise with the use of Facebook. Study questions the night before a test or telling a professor you can't make class is efficiently accomplished, yet the professor-student social line is still respected. -Kris, senior at Valapariso Instant Feedback: Texting

  • 18. “I don't have a wish list because I am blown away by what Indiana University offers. IU uses OnCourse, which I can only describe as "academic networking" and it is AWESOME! My professors post the syllabus and may send out messages prior to the first class meeting. Assignments are emailed or uploaded instead of printed and turned in that way. Grades are posted online as assignments are graded. The student roster is available and I can email my classmates if I need to. There is messaging and chat built in, too. My Lit professor posts YouTube videos, extra informational .pdfs and Word documents, all kinds of stuff. I am so enamored with OnCourse, I could go on and on.” - Sherry, nontraditional student at Indiana University
