Plan and Track Assignments in Classes

Most students at The Art Institute Online have hectic lives outside of class, which makes it difficult to keep track of all of the assignments, due dates, and whether or not they have even been done! If you suffer from icantkeeptrackofmyassignmentsphobia then this little application may be just what you need. Logan Rockmore has developed Assignment Planner, which lets you…well…track assignments. His site says:

Assignment Planner is an application which allows you to keep track of homework assignments for a number of different courses. It includes features that allow you to display only those assignments that are yet to be completed, add information to all your assignments, courses and textbooks for reference, filter assignments by their type, color code assignments by a number of different criteria, and much more. you can also export your assignments to a text file or to iCal, to easily view your assignments from your iPod.

How to Promote Your Web Design Services

So you just received your Bachelor of Science in Interactive Media Design from The Art Institute Online and are wondering how to promote your services. Maybe this web designer’s self-promotional video will inspire you. (tongue in cheek)

I saw this video over at Smiley Cat, which is an excellent web design blog. Although the video may be funny and being spread all across the web as a joke, there is an important lesson here – viral marketing. It is being spread like wildfire and is in-turn building traffic to his website. All of the links and traffic will increase his web popularity, which will result in better search engine results…regardless of how silly the video is. So while you laugh at the video, just think about this guy might actually know what he’s doing…at least that’s what I like to think.
