I can see your installation is pretty handcrafted for your personal
needs and its pretty cool to see you managed that. The main thing I'm
afraid of is that I'm from a different country and I'm almost 100% sure
the things are different over here compared to other countries, so if I
start some coding I will find very useful experience you already have in
both managing online courses/datas and tools for interacting with
students (gradebook, assignments and schedules).

For me, so far, is pretty clear the workflow and management of
informations using ScholarPress, but I believe there's space for
improvements (like already mentioned separation of courses from
schedules) and thats where your input will matter a lot.

Also I would like to see your code published and understand approaches
you used, lets say, for tasks/assignments.
