Both TWEN and Courses are utilized by both students and faculty for effective classroom communication. Read on to learn more about these course management systems.
TWEN, The West Education Network (http://lawschool.westlaw.com): This is an online system where students can access course materials, submit assignments via Drop Box, sign-up for office hours (if available), take polls and quizzes, participate in class discussions, and exchange e-mail messages with instructors and peers. The extent of your TWEN use will depend on your professors’ course objectives and goals.
