Technologically, best way to schedule your homework?

Postby AncientMarinade » Mon Feb 11, 2013 3:07 am

I use Google Calender for scheduling, Outlook for calender and email, Onenote for classes, my phone for reminders with email and scheduling...

What is the easier, most efficient way to keep a week-by-week account of the homework/assignments due?

Google Tasks within Google Calendar (and GMail) works pretty well. Lots of apps will interface with it as well.

NOTHING! You have done everything possible, what else could there be. You get alerts before and when your shits do set to your preference, you know what pages to read, and when to read them by. What else could you possibly be looking for? [Serious question]

http://www.todoist.com is my favorite and I've tried a ton of different things because I'm kind of obsessed with to-do lists.

I make a Wordpad document on my Dropbox. Put stuff in there that I need to do each day. Remove it when it is done.

This guy posted his setup using Outlook for scheduling and HW: http://top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=163781&hilit=onenote
whether that's "easier" or "more efficient" is up to you.

Just reread thread. This.

I just put "corps reading" on my to do list. Putting the actual assignments seems like a waste, but to each his own I suppose.

I actually did put all my assignments (like, the specific pages) in my to-do app (I use Remember the Milk). But that's because then I could look them up on my phone and not have to fire up the whole computer when I only needed to open up the casebook.

I just read a favorite passage from the casebook and call it a day.

But seriously, I reference the syllabus on my computer and if I don't have my computer, well, I am sick out of luck.
