More About TRACS
TRACS (Teaching, Research, And Collaboration System) is the collaborative learning environment at Texas State University.
TRACS enables faculty to enhance classroom instruction or deliver distance learning by bringing their course materials, class discussions, assignments and quizzes to the Web. Students can view course and campus announcements in one location, access direct links to course web sites and groups, and view and create a personal calendar and "to do" lists correlated with individual course calendars.
TRACS provides tools to build and manage course sites and online campus environments, without knowledge of HTML or other programming languages.
There are two types of sites in TRACS; course and project sites. A course site is used for coursework, documents and materials for a course. A project site may be used for collaboration on research, for committee work, for collaborative development projects and more.
