This is my fourth paper on the programme. Hi Debra, here we are again. I expect more colleagues will post on their blogs as they begin this course. I am the most apprehensive about this course as I know from past expereince that I am liable to get behind and I don't hink there's any space for catching up when you are facilitating an online community.
I fully intend to set aside time during the week to complete this course work. For the other papers we have been advised to spend 5 hours a week on the course. Why do I have a feeling that this course is going to be more demanding?
I have attempted to use a forum in my teaching but not very successfully, it was the early days of web 2 technologies and my students were quite reluctant to participate. I found that they were happy to get involved in a discussion in the classroom or seminar but when it came to putting their thoughts down in writing it was another story.
Anyway, that's all for now from me,
