So my main reason for taking this class is to do with summer teaching. Many of our second language speaking students wish to take classes over the summer, especially writing classes to fulfill that requirement, but they also wish to go home to see family. Being so far away from home for many this is the only opportunity in the year to go home. This is a dilemma but one that could be solved by creating online versions of the classes we currently teach. It would also give us more flexibility as instructors.
The biggest issue for me is I am not the best with technology. In my 9 years at Emory I have certainly gained a lot of knowledge with the patience of such good folks as Leah. I am confident with Blackboard for example and can whip up a survey on survey monkey. Yesterday I learned how to do forms on Wufu…BUT it takes TIME!!!!! And when something goes wrong……it’s hard for me to fix it! Leah??????/ Help??????
