We have a study skills course.  (The name school will be changing to Learning
Strategies). Dr. Carolyn Hopper, full-professor in the Developmental Studies
Program is the coordinator and instructor in that program.  You might want to
look at her website.  She has integrated Power Point on the web for her
students. http://www.mtsu.edu/~studskl/
