The Syllabus Challenge

Some marketing claims are just that… “claims”.

When we said you could import your entire semester’s worth of Assignments, Papers, To-Do’s, Exams, and Reminders in less time than it takes to bake some Bagel Bites.  We weren’t blowing smoke. See for yourself.

The Rules:

  1. It must take less than14 minutes to import any syllabus – the time it takes to bake Bagel Bites in an oven (16 minutes in a toaster oven).
  2. The syllabi are from real students at liberal arts, professional, and online colleges/universities, including: Biology, Nursing, Art, English Literature, Social Work, Archaeology, Political Science, International Politics, and Information Technology.
  3. The syllabi come from Bachelors, Masters, and Ph.D. programs.
  4. Graysen (the user in the video) hasn’t read or practiced with any of the syllabi prior to recording – but he does know how to use the Syllabus Tool.

Updates: September 9, 2015

The semester just got under way, but we’ve already got a few minor updates rolling out.  While none of these are major, they make a few things clearer, a few others easier, and some things smoother.  That may have been too much word-play.

Anyways, here are the updates:

Paper Hover Windows:  If you’ve kept a keen eye, you’ll notice that Papers are working just a bit differently.  Instead of always being directed to a page with your paper’s details on it, you’ll first get a pop-up window with some of the basics you need to get to more frequently than others.  Don’t worry, you can always open the full page with the link at the top of the window.

Paper Tabs: We’ve updated the tab order inside your paper so that it makes more sense.  Now the tabs mirror the process of writing a paper from start to finish.

Writing Tab: We are working really hard trying to get our Paper writing tool out as soon as possible.  But, in the mean time, we’ve added a tab that gives you a little more direction about how you write the body of your paper in conjunction with PERRLA Complete.  It also has a countdown clock for when paper writing will be rolling out!

Syllabus Tool & Safari: It seems like some of our Apple Safari lovers were running into trouble with the tabs on the Syllabus Tool.  Never fear, dear Mac-ites.  We’ve updated our code to play nice with your favorite browser.

Behind the Scenes: Although you can’t see it, we’ve made some changes to the underlying structure of PERRLA Complete that will make it easier for us to integrate paper writing.  You won’t notice anything different, but trust us, it is.  And it’s better. Really!

That’s it for today’s updates.  Happy Wednesday!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

With all of the work that went into the recent release of PERRLA Complete, we haven’t had a lot of time for shenanigans.

But, this week, in honor of Valentine’s Day, we decided to do something silly for your entertainment.  (Okay, for OUR entertainment!)  We hope you’ll get a chuckle out of our first ever sock puppet video…

Apologies to the the phenomenal Barry “Dr. Love” White and to the one-and-only “Queen Bey” Beyonce…
