I was excited to learn more about e-learning in my E-Learning for Educators class and beginning with week 1, I was learning useful information. When we started the class, I immediately realized that my classmates are a wealth of information. This helped me to see that this is the case in an online class. It seems the students begin to depend on each other to assist with their learning. I really enjoyed the collective knowledge that was shared throughout the class.
Although I have some experience with online teaching and learning, I learned so much each and every week. It was interesting to really dig into the how and why of e-learning. For example, I’ve lead online discussions but this time I was able to delve into the readings and learn more about tone, voice and critical thinking and then practice using those skills.
