Tech tools to keep organized in your work as a professor - communicating with students, designing and delivering courses, managing a to-do list, and collaborating with colleagues.
I like google calendar reminders better than tasks. You can schedule them for a time, and then you get a reminder at that time (so you can do it or reschedule it).
"required, but not graded" How do you get students to cooperate when something is "not graded"? There are some students who just won't bother taking the time to do something that is not going to impact on their grade.
I might modify that to say "grade deduction if not done". Or, if it is a pre-requisite for some future (maybe summative) task, they either won't be able to complete or do well on the summative (follow-up) task or can even be locked out of the future task until the "required but not graded" task is done.
Can I give you some advice? It is true that you mentioned a lot of tools, but I think you seem to have missed some download tools. There are many video materials that we need to use in class, and some websites do not allow us to download its videos well. Maybe a screen recorder is a good choice, but I think a download tool would be faster and easier.
I've been using Doremi recently, here's the link: https://doremizone.net/ , hope it doesn't bother you.
