CourseWorks lets you get info for your classes, but only if your professors bother to use it.

Courseworks was based on the Prometheus open source platform, and launched in 2001-2002. In 2002, Prometheus was bought by Blackboard, the vendor whose eponymous software serves the same role as courseworks at many of Columbia's peer institutions. Columbia plans on replacing Courseworks with a Sakai based program at some unknown time in the future.
