It can simplify your life. But it can cause you to miss important email from your instructors. To avoid problems, you can… check your Clutter folder often, train your Clutter folder, make rules to keep some messages out of Clutter, or turn off the Clutter […]
Pilot can help you match students’ names to faces. Unfortunately, the Classlist only shows photos that students choose to upload to their Pilot profiles.

Your class list is automatically populated with students who are registered for your class. You can add students, teaching assistants and observers (or even other faculty) to the course. If a student drops your class, his/her name should drop off of your Classlist. If not, verify that the student officially dropped and contact the CTL to remove his/her name. Before you add a student to your Pilot course, be sure to verify that he/she is […]
