I think your point is well stated. I would like to suggest that members use a "signature" in their email that includes direct contact email address to help those folks who are looking for further information or to help limit the "me too's".  Sometimes the individual address is not accessible in the email properties or people may not know how to access it.  This may help to reduce those who are simply asking for the same information.

I have been reticent about using the listserve since there have been frequent criticisms about responses.  I am new to the list and not particularly computer savvy.  However, this list is for all of us and the information has helped me tremendously.  I am about to have Tutrotrac installed in my center and find the current feedback important.  There are many responses that do not apply to me, but they are easy to delete.  I really don't think that any of us should feel reluctant to use the site because of our "lack of talent."  Instead, I would ask for patience and understanding that this information might be important to someone else on the list.  
 
Thank you,

Dean: 

I see your point...just trying limit repetition. I just see so many "me too's" and other repetitive responses with certain topics, it becomes like nails on a chalkboard after awhile. 

I will just delete...

Travis, 

I understand the desire to limit emails. However, if those who respond to Charlotte's (or anyone else's) email do so off-list, then I miss all the good answers. I may have that same question. We do share answers here and there may be a new thought on TutorTrac that has not been expressed in the archives. I just want to be careful not to lose some of the critical ideas or suggestions that I have become to enjoy and use over the years! 

On a side note for everyone: 
I did just receive a flurry of emails (11) from the list. Nine I could immediately delete, one I saved for later use, and I have responded to this one. All within the span of 30 seconds. Is it that difficult to delete these emails if one doesn't need to read them. It does not bother me so much to delete many emails I don't need. Just curious! And please don't refer me to the archives for previous discussions on this topic! HAHA Sorry, just adding a bit of levity to my long day! 

Thanks, 
Dean

Charlotte: 

I would recommend that you search the LRNASST archives (http://www.lists.ufl.edu/archives/lrnasst-l.html). TutorTrac is a very popular discussion topic on LRNASST, and folks have shared their thoughts on the product in the past. 

I am trying to prevent an over-abundance of responses to your question in our respective in-boxes, which has been already been discussed at great depths. 

And for those who want to respond to Charlotte's question of TutorTrac, please e-mail her off-list. 

Thanks!

I am curious to know if anyone uses the software TUTOR-TRAC in their Leaning Center. If you do please give me any comments about satisfaction and how you use it in the Learning Center.
