yea i thought it was kind of cool if you use your notebook at school. i pretty much do all of my home work on mine, so it will be kind of nice to have a dedicated program for keeping track of stuff thats due... and seeing
though its free, i am willing to try it. i will see how it works when college starts again in 2 weeks!

I use SchoolHouse and it's a great program, and to be honet, it really helps me out with keeping on top of my assignments and grades.

I'm going to check out this program to see if it's better.


Edit: Just tried it out. It's good for keeping on top of individual tasks, but if you're interested in keeping on top of every assignment, then you're better off with something like SchoolHouse or TaskList. Using both in conjunction would probably be best, but sort of a pain as you'll end up spending more time on scheduling your assignments than actually doing them

You know, I actually felt the same way when I found that program at the end of last Fall semester. Turns out, it was a great tool in the Spring and I'm using it now during my summer classes. Definitely a great tool for keeping all the assignments in one easy to access location.

I've been using Entourage to organize my schoolwork. It has a feature called Project Center that lets you set up projects (I make each class a project) and you can organize and separate calendar events, notes, files, contacts, and emails to each project (class). With all the digital resources profs use and team-oriented work, it really helps me keep everything in line and stay on track without trying to remember everything happening all the time.

I'll have to check out SchoolHouse to see if it may be a better option since it's made specifically for this kind of work.

Has anyone in here had trouble with the schoolhouse in panther. I looked in the site a few months back and it told me to run it in rosetta which I did and now it won't work at all.

This was on of my favorite program since I do all my school on line. If anyone knows of a fix I would appreciate it.

The problem: every time I open the program it bounces in my doc and then quits.
