The two online and hybrid forays this semester are almost ready to go. Upload, test, fix, then start. It’s been somewhat of a challenge working on these courses. We’re working with a new version of WebCT, which isn’t bad really, and my energy level with the courses went from high in July to low in August, sort of the sprint then the slow, warmdown run to the finish line. (Sorry, dudes, the broken laptop has also slowed down letter writing.)
The hybrid literature will be an interesting set up. Online forums for weekly discussions and a brief in-class meeting to clarify things and to discuss issues that rise up online and in the readings.
