I’ve still got a few more posts to write to get caught up for the semester, but one of the reasons I wanted to take an online course about teaching online is so that I would have the experience of being an online student. As I’ve watched my students submit a flurry of posts to their blogs over the past week as the assignment deadline approached, I recognized that I was doing the same thing here. I’ve spent a lot of time as a student in a classroom to understand what my face to face students go through, but this is the first time I’ve been in an online class to get a sense of what my online students experience. It’s not much, but it’s a start, and I’m glad I’ve done it.
