I hope this system will work for you:
wiki: containers with references for each chapter/study topic. You may choose which chapter to view.
blog: running dialog about assignments, in linear (chronological) order. Your best place to check for assignments and updates. Any media posted here can be subscribed in iTunes, such as podcasts, videos and so on. You may also leave comments here (e.g. "this assignment is too hard/easy")
calendar: important dates such as due dates, tests, field trips. You may subscribe in iCal if you like.
mail: I'm still working on this, but it should email you when changes are made. If you have RSS on your browser, you can do this by looking for the RSS icon on any page:
Please leave comments if you have any on the blog, I'll use these to improve this system. Thanks-
