EDBT 4570 On-line

On-Line Learning

First, I think that on-line learning is the way of the future. I feel that I have gained a good deal of knowledge from on-line sessions this semester. I like on-line sessions because they are convenient and can be worked in with my busy schedule. The only disadvantage for me with on-line sessions is finding the time to complete the assignment when you are trying to keep up with your teaching duties and family life. Although, I rather do the on-line assignments than traveling to class which would be more time consuming for me. On-line sessions are good for my learning style because it gives me a chance to research and do the assignments in my own way and at my on pace. I personally like the on-line sessions and hope we continue them.

I agree with you. On-line is much more schedule friendly with so much to do between teaching, family, and extra-curricular activities. I have never thought about it the way you stated, "On-line sessions are good for my learning style because it gives me a chance to research and do the assignments in my own way and at my own pace". I have spent more time looking things up and trying to learn the info given instead of just reading, because that is not my learning style. That's true.
