“A few weeks ago, a new service for faculty launched: FacultyFiles.com.
The service is designed to make work easier for faculty by making it very easy to store and reuse frequently used items, such as feedback for purposes of grading, common responses to discussion board questions, course materials, and the like. The service is directed primarily at those who teach (at least partly) online, though all faculty can benefit from this sort of service. FacultyFiles is well aware of faculty who may be part-time; it’s possible to set up courses for more than one school. In fact, a perusal of the job boards (at least the job boards available with the ten-day trial subscription) indicates that part-time faculty are the intended user base; all of the links are to adjunct job sites.”
