Course Feedback

Here is my feedback from this course.

First off, I like the format, I see a lot of potential in this particular way of teaching, and I think I learned more than I would have as it was more self-guided than courses I’m used to.

I’ll admit freely there were obvious issues that were came up throughout the course.  Those were identified, and we adapted, so I’m not going to pick at those.   But here are a few things I think could be done differently.

  • More frequent posts from the instructor, highlighted on the main page.  I think it would be really helpful to have a separate table listing highlighting instructor posts vs. student posts.
  • Feedback and Grades.  I never really knew where I stood in this course.  I’m not asking for hand-holding, but more frequent posting of scores of assignments would’ve eased some anxiety.
  • We did a lot of posting, but not a lot of commenting.  I think the course could benefit from more student to student interaction.  I’m not sure how you do that, but it would increase the value of the course.

Overall, I liked the change of format.  I’m sure I would’ve really enjoyed the third or fourth iteration of this type of class.  Don’t give up on it, I think it’s a good move.

So, a little about me eh?  Born and raised in a little U.P. town on the east end of Lake Superior, I moved down to the Lansing area about 10 years ago to work in Call Center Workforce Management.  It's fairly specialized work, and because of that, my job level has outpaced my education, so it's time to balance that back out.  Would you like to know more?  Just ask.
