Distance learning 1

What were my initial thoughts on long-distance learning before I started this program? Well … I was a bit skeptical about it, as far as how safe it was to be on line and not be able to interact with real people in real time. Then there was the security issue, would my work get lost in the cyber-world and be able to be seen by all. Something I don’t like. But after talking to a friend of mine who is taking online classes, she showed me how easy and safe the whole online class thing was. Why did I choose long-distance learning over a traditional face-to-face learning environment? I decided to do the online learning bit because of time, and the fact that I have a job and this worked for me. I do prophase I do sometime find it easier to interact in real time, but after years of online chat room talk, I’ve gotten use to this form of communication, and I welcome the idea of learning on line. In what ways has my views of long-distance learning changed since you started your classes? Well to tell you the truth this question is a bit pre-mature, because I just started this class and it’s to early for me to way in on any well formed opinion on how I may like or dislike this form of teaching media. As I said in the beginning I was skeptical about it at first, but I’m here and I’m going to do my best to embrace it all, and do well in this class
