Recently Tufts transitioned to a new system for its course websites. This system is nicknamed “Trunk.” It uses software that builds structured websites to complement your course. It allows you to publish course syllabi and assignments, and it has the capacity for virtual chat sessions, discussion boards, and securely sending assignments. Contact Emily Mears if you are interested in accessing the Trunk site for your course.
In addition, Tufts has a set of web applications called Spark Tools that facilitate the creation of blogs or wikis within the Tufts system. You should also contact Emily if you are interested in using any of the Spark Tools.
