How do you use Sapling Learning? I use Sapling for weekly online homework assignments in my organic chemistry courses. I also periodically use Sapling for its database of iClicker friendly questions and to create an occasional custom assignment using questions that I write.

Advice on Using Technology with Students: There is always a bit of a learning curve. Be patient at first and don't be afraid to make mistakes. Stress to your students the benefits of using a particular technology and how they should approach it from the perspective of enhancing their learning and understanding; not simply as a means to gain some extra points or to check another item off of their to-do list.
