Cagle EDBT 4570 Nov. 17-23

I enjoyed the classes that we have had this semester. I got to meet lot of very nice people and received some very helpful instructions. However, I am a visual learner. It took me a long time to realize this. I always wonder when studying a language, some people could learn to speak it sooner that me. However, I could learn to read and write it before they could. Working on line enables me to devote more time to studying and it saves lots of time and money. I would prefer to take all my classes on line. Since all of us teach, it helps to give us more time to spend working with our students. I think that it is necessary to attend class once in a while. It enables you to ask questions about subject matter that you don't understand and to hear other people's opinions.
This semester I have learned many things that will help me to be a better teacher. The instructions have been great and the instuctors are some of the best.

I think I might tend to agree with you. If we had all classes online, it would certainly help save time. I thought that navigating through ulearn would be my challenge, but I've finally gotten the hang of it. I would probably vote for one or two meetings in class and the rest online. Georgette
