Journal & Daily Assignments (Ben Here)

Download the Templates (presets) and the sample entries from Moodle.org Course Exchange. 

Ben formated this so that it would display nicely on his SmartBoard each day, using some HTML formating.  As well as holding the Journal topic of the day, it holds the assignments and what students who are absent need to do to make up the day.  Not only good on it's own, but lots of ideas for how to use databases.
