|Terry WAS unhappy...|
In the first minutes I discovered that the meeting was NOT a departmental meeting; it was a meeting for departmental faculty who were NOT using the standard course management software.
I listened for 4 minutes and then raised my hand. "I have my own class portal for the students," I said.
I went up to the front computer, entered the web address for one of my classes (they're all linked from my official college homepage), and up it came.
Syllabus and handouts in a sidebar. Discussion questions for all 15 weeks. Login info for students, instructions for responding to all the posted readings, even links to some supplemental texts and links to the official texts. (I made it on Blogger, by the way.)
"Why aren't you using the department's software," the chair said.
"Free will," I said.
I got let out early and went and went to have two cinnamon buns at the student-less cafeteria.
