Quote: "I constantly find myself needing to update various documents like my curriculum vitae, my digital university folder for annual evaluations, and managing research publications stored on different devices, both at my office and home. To ensure data safety, I back up my work on a USB drive and in Dropbox. Additionally, I maintain a faculty website. The challenge is that I often have to update these documents simultaneously, and searching for specific items can be quite time-consuming. I wish there was a streamlined solution that consolidates all these tasks into a single, user-friendly platform." - Sabrina Kendrick, P.hD.
As a faculty member, how long would it take for you
- to gather the materials for tenure and promotion application?
- find and send a copy of the PowerPoint file you presented at a conference two years ago?
- provide the course syllabus for the course you taught three years ago?
- find the SPSS data file for the paper you published two years ago?
- share your official transcript or diploma for your Master's degree?
- provide your annual evaluation report for the last academic year?
- email a copy of the certification you received three years ago for online teaching?
- prepare for the annual review report?
- share copies of your selected journal publications?
