Onlinie...pros & cons

I really liked the Online portion of EDBT 4570. It allowed me to fit the work into my schedule and when I was most ready to really focus on the activities. Most of the in class sessions, I was so tired by the time I left school, caught Marta and made it into the classroom, that I was just kind of there, but online I could arrange it to suit my needs. Some of the lessons were hard and time consuming-but I have found that that is true for all things in life-just like in the real classroom setting. The few things I did not like about the online sessions were that it made me more accountable to remember to do them, and that the ULearn site kept going down after only being on the site for about 5 minutes at a time. It kept kicking me off the site each time I would go to another section. That may have been my computer or user error, but it was annoying. Overall, I really liked the online sessions.

I agree with the online lessons suiting a busy mom's schedule too Shellee. Sometimes I can do my blog during plan....sometimes! I also liked logging on at school just to take a look, then logging on at home to really get the work done. Home is nice isn't it!!!
