Class over the internet
Last week's class in the e-class room was an experience that I am so glad we had the opportunity to participate in. It was the only forum that we could have had the level of participation that we had from people that were spread all over the country. While the night began with technical difficulties it ended up being very successful. It was a very relaxed atmosphere in the classroom. The only thing is we missed the visual and everyone wished that we could have seen the guests and professor as they were speaking. Typing our responses to questions was a wonderful way to engage all of the cohort in discussions. People that may be less willing to speak in class, had no problem typing away in the virtual classroom. Overall the experience was very positive and overall very informative and engaging.
