Assignments Are Due

I think students who take courses online classes are busier than ever before. They have a job, life, school, and children, or taking care of an elderly parent.  Are they stressed out? Of course, they are. They must manage everything and even staying up late to finish an assignment.

Time management and scheduling are the keys to be successful.  Students have two jobs. They work at their 9 to 5 job, and when they get home, they have to do more things to prepare themselves for the next task they have to do. In other words, personal stuff. And if they have a child or an older adult. They have more priority than education. Staying in good health is necessary and staying alive too.

I don’t understand why professors give the student more assignments to do. Professors tell their student to prioritize what they need to do. Have a calendar on hand, make a schedule and make time for yourself too. Other students maybe lazy and they forgot what assignments they need to do. Some students are smart, and they do assignments on time. Professors want to teach the students how to be responsible but calling their parents and telling that they missed a task – is not a good idea. Reminding the whole class when the assignment is due is the proper thing to do. If you think I am wrong, it’s like Professor doesn’t care about their students anymore and they get a bad review when the students must evaluate the professors at the end of the semester. The professors receive a grade too. Professors remind your students constantly when the assignments are due. If you think I am wrong, why you didn’t you get the award for the professor of the year award?

The professors can spam the students in their school email account and their blackboard and Moodle account to make sure they do the assignments.

Social Media helps too. But it could be awkward if you are besties with your professor on snap chat, Facebook, or Instagram. Pictures. Whoa.

The professors keep telling their students they had to be responsible for everything of they have to learn and prepared for anything. Do they still do pop quizzes in colleges, universities, and online? Students read your syllabus. If the students can’t read the syllabus, get the audio portion of the syllabus. Do they do that? Have an audio part of the syllabus? If so, that’s great, if not – you are lost.

Professors should limit their assignment or give them choices of what to do. Because students have a load of assignments and projects to do and deadlines are due.  Students need rest and sleep too. If a student gives a professor an apple, use it to your advantage, if a student is sleeping in your class throw the apple at them.

Blackboard and Moodle are now together and more convenient to do their assignments and use discussing boards to talk back and forth. It’s like a classroom where you do not have to raise your hand but engage in conservation of the subject or get help. Using a video chat may help, who wants to see a person either half-naked in their pajamas or seeing someone in the background doing inappropriate things.

Your Children Future

Do you want to prepare your children for the future? How do you do it? First, let your children be children, and let them grow. But when they go to high school it’s time to be serious. They have to be prepared for the S.A.T test and pick the right college or university to further their education. They have skills. Can their skills change the future? Could they be the next president without the scandals they have in the past?

How would they survive? That’s the parent’s problem. Parents have to teach and train their child to be better than themselves. Parents make mistakes too. But the parents must teach their child to be a better person and smarter.

In high school, they must learn science, technology, engineering, and mathematics or STEM; this applies to acting, business, and cooks.  And technology engineering companies. Engineering technology is a must and applies to everywhere, building computers, building the latest software and building much stuff to make our lives a better in the future. Movies influence us of what the future would look like. If we could make that in reality, it would be great. And they need a teen life too like going to prom and school activities.

What we have to do is to influence our children, it all starts with the parents. Teacher and professors are the resources and shape them to be a better person in the future. School and universities have laboratories and the latest technology they need to get ahead. Why blow up the garage and home, if it is insured.

Don’t start them late, or they end up in a garage forming a band that goes nowhere, or homeless.  They need a stable future and career.

It all starts at home and parents. Make that change.

 

FBI Reading My Post?

Did your internet go down yesterday? If you did? Then you know why? You should not write bad stuff about the president of theUnited States, the FBI is scanning your computer, and they know where you live at. Whatever  you wrote they were reading it. Just like now. If they are reading my post right I am not complaining of how to run the country—it’s not my job. Who elected him? The people did. He’s trying to do a good job.

Probably, the FBI wanted to scan people computers just to find if United States is being threatened by an inside source in the United States. They are few people out there who doesn’t like what the world is going through. We have to deal with it. What we have to do – Get A Life! Don’t spend too much time trying to figure out what is wrong with the world and go online to update your status on Facebook, is that obvious?  I have no objection. It’s nice to vent and share it with other people in the group what happens if one of your friends works in the government, then what would you do? We get into trouble.

What we say we want to be heard, but who will listen to us – no one.  We all want to be problem solvers, but sometime it doesn’t work that way. It’s a threat to theUnited Statesand the security. We have too many terrorists who want to attack us. We have to stop these terrorists penetrating our country. And the best way is our computer and the internet. Go back to snail mail.

The Email will Self – destruct in 60 second

Have you ever wanted to send an email to a friend, and they have only a few seconds to read it and poof it is gone. They would think what happened. What happened to the message? Who send this? The email will self- destruct in 60 seconds!
Burn Note takes an incredibly simple premise and executes it simply. You write a message on the site, you enter the email address or email addresses of the people you want to send the message to; you configure your settings — the length of time your recipient will be able to read the message, whether or not he or she will be able to copy and paste, etc. — and you hit send. From here, Burn Note fires off an email with a link to your message on the Burn Note website; from the time, your recipient clicks the link, he or she has 60 seconds to read your message (60 seconds being the default), after which time the message disappears from Burn Note’s servers and leaves the Internet forever.
The default message view flashes a few words of your message at a time, and the intervals are much too quick to read with any comprehension. When you receive a new Burn Note, it currently comes from a sender called “notice”; having the option to change the sender ID to your own email address, for example, would help immensely.
