Online Classroom “Comes of Age”


For quite a few years now WITS (Williamsville Information Tracking System) has been growing in the amount of information it stores and provides. In the last year it has become the starting point for most teacher and student work. It acheived a milestone recently, I believe, in its ability to be the online virtual classroom to connect teachers and students.

Document posting is now availalbe in WITS – teachers can post files (homework, class notes, just about anything) for students to download. This feature, along with notes, links, forums, grades, etc. are breaking down the walls of the classroom and extending it into the web where it should be. Security reasons prevent students from being able to post documents to teachers. Hopefully at some point this can be worked out so 2-way communication can happen.

Enjoy the safe, secure, stable virtual classroom that WITS is!
