Funny how after all of this time, i just quickly decided I would jump into Grad school and then a few months later its happening. Just finished my first week of my first class. Now this might not seem like a big deal but after 22 years of not being a student it is actually a great feeling.
I must say that the Moodle format that Boise is using is pretty cool. Great ideas that I will take into my class in the class. I really like the “self-assessement quiz” just empower the students and put the learning and follow through into their own hands.
So far, what i like is the assignments, format and set up. What I don’t really like is that there is no common place to see who is all in my class. Hard to wade through a video introduction forum of 70+ posts to find the 12 or so folks in our class. I think I will change this moving forward. Also, I always knew that I needed to be more present in my online aspect of my class, but really never knew how important until this class. I really wish the instructor was a bit more part of the class – maybe that will come….
