I’d like to get some feedback about (Undergrad/Grad level) Distance Learning. I’d like to hear from both those who have taught distance education classes and those who have taken distance education classes.
I hope to get as much information as possible, so please direct folks to this post and ask them to help by leaving their own experiences in the comments.
If for some reason, you have experiences you would prefer to keep private, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will keep your comments confidential.
I will make this easy. Just 2 questions.
1. What did you like most about the distance learning course that you took/taught? Please avoid the obvious answers: “I didn’t have to be on campus” or “I could do it at my own pace/time.” Instead, think about how the teacher-student(s) interaction worked, the user interface, or options that worked better online than in a classroom.
2. What did you dislike (i.e. what really drove you crazy?) about the distance education course? You can be specific to a particular class, or to the entire experience (or both).
Please include in your comment if you were a student or a teacher. Feel free to add more comments, suggestions, etc.
Thank you for helping!
