Abstract :Language educators ought not turn a blind eye to the multitude of online class management resources available to them—resources which have become extremely powerful, functional and accessible. For teachers without access to any established inhouse course management system (CMS), good stand-in systems are readily available on the World Wide Web. Online CMSs offer similar advantages to in-house systems, including (a) effective methods of communicating and sharing with students, (b) efficient means of disseminating homework assignments or tasks, (c) sets of convenient tools for maintaining records of grades and attendance, and (d) support for students in the tracking of their own individual progress through learning. Such blended learning environments are here to stay. However, how difficult is it for teachers to put such systems into practice? And how do students react to CMSs? In answer, this paper firstly demonstrates the fundamentals of pre-made online multifunctional grade-books—straightforward systems that educators can freely use to (a) more effectively coordinate classes and courses, (b) communicate with school administrators, fellow co-workers and students, and (c) provide learners with the ability to keep track of, and better manage, their own development in cooperative courses. Secondly, this paper outlines students' favorable experiences with regard to one such free online CMS.
