Professors often belittle their students for procrastination. From the inbox: Many of you may be aware that we have seen performance issues today in AsULearn. In an effort to isolate the issue, we will temporarily restrict the process of import/restore to the non-peak hours between 5PM and 9AM each weekday. The AsULearn service will still be available 24/7; only the teacher's ability to import/restore course materials is being time-limited.
