Blog Post - Week 7

On Line Learning

This week I would appreciate it if you would Post about your experiences this semester with on-line learning in EDBT 4570. What did you like? What did you dislike? Would you like more/less? How does on-line learning fit with your learning style? What's your perfect "mix?" Remember to make a comment to at least one other student. Thanks, Dr. J.

I am from the old school of learning and I prefer the traditional learning environment merely because I am an auditory & visual learner. The best part of this experience has been the opportunity to work at my own pace and of course I appreciated the opportunity to save on gas. I must admit I am experiencing problems working inside the little box (screen) - some what confined and bordering on claustrophobic.

I am very open minded and very aware that this way of teaching and learning is the future classroom. I will probably do more on-line classes in the future and I will make the adjustments as I have done for this class. Overall, as I have stated before I have learned a lot and remain enthusiastic about the next two classes - whether online or in the traditional setting.

I agree with you Brenda. I will make it work despite how the class is set up. This experience has definitely given me some insight on how online learning will be when pursuing a masters program.
