What Our Students Say
At first I was skeptical at what I could get out of a primarily online class that results in such a large project. I can see the benefit of the discussions and maybe its more the students in the class but there is a click to everything we talk about. We can go out on a tangent and yet reel ourselves back in with the topic. I have talked about everything and there seems to be no boundaries in what you can talk about. With the diversity in age and background the discussions can go on for days and they are useful. The portfolio is not as intimidating now as it seemed at first. I am happy I am in the class and can definitely see a need for a break from the traditional classroom environment. This is a whole new learning style for me and it works.
