I just wanted to share my experience with you from the last couple of days. I have taken online classes before....I actually prefer them. Over the summer I am currently taking two online classes, both of which are unlike any other online class I have taken. From my experience teachers normally give you the work and you submit it when its due. Thinking tonight about my experience over the last couple of days made me want some feedback from others on their experience. Texting and typing messages are soooo ambiguous....there can always be a different meaning to what a person is trying to get across. Tonight for example, my instructor simple types in a "chat" like environment to a class of thirteen or so....every other word is "great" or "super"! In a traditional classroom setting, most students are less likely to offer their opinion on certain topics, but tonight everyone was saying what they really thought! To me, this type of setting offers students the opportunity to voice their actual opinions without the fear of critical judgment........thoughts anyone???
