Tomorrow IS June (LOL not today so I’m not a day late and 250 dollars short because I .I just shoved $250 to MYFEST and now I’m thinking I really should have done the “give me 50% discount” because … it’s out of my pocket, not the institution .. (note to self: turn off the money faucet where you can…

Looked at COBRA (Desire2Learn, Brightspace are the brand names for it) learning management options for online quizzes.

THey are all completely dependent on text. It’s a Universal Design For Learning conflict, in myhumble opinion.

C’mon thing, I beckon to thee…. but I beckoned to the air conditioner to kick in, too, and that hasn’t happened, though I forgot to go out and kick it and see if that helped. Every summer it’s taken a few more tries of turning it on, flipping circuit breaker… fiddling w/ the outside switch… and I almost give up and it goes on. Seemed the outside switch thing didn’t even pretend to move,, though. Prob’ly another bit of an expense… oh, and screen door…
