Professors often belittle their students for procrastination. From the inbox:
Many of you may be aware that we have seen performance issues today in AsULearn. In an effort to isolate the issue, we will temporarily restrict the process of import/restore to the non-peak hours between 5PM and 9AM each weekday.
The AsULearn service will still be available 24/7; only the teacher's ability to import/restore course materials is being time-limited. Other imports, such as gradebook/scantron imports, are not affected. NOTE: Files may still be added to the course, and no other course functionality will be affected.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding as we work through this problem.
AsULearn is our Moodle course management system. "Import/restore" is when you take your saved course (i.e., syllabus, quizzes, other assignments) from a previous semester and move it to the current semester. Today is the first day of classes. So, yes, a bunch of professors waited until the last minute to get ready for the first day of class (I did my import/restore last week).
