Synchronous and Asynchronous Tools

Today I set-up my synchoronous and asynchronous tools.  I am using my UNA school email as my asynchronous tool and skype as my synchronous tool.  You can email me at gwilson1@una.edu and my skype account is gwilson7107.  I'm very familiar with the email but the skype tool is very new to me.  It is going to take some time to get to used to it.  Working from home, I'm limited by my HughesNet internet in what I can do with regard to video but I will try to make the best of it.I have found a great…See More

They know how to get to their game website and play till their eyeballs fall out, but when I ask them to find a file they created yesterday, they…See More
