Well the assignments are challenging. Not impossible, just a lot more depth of knowledge required, and of course, being a keener teacher type, I am probably going above and beyond the expectations. I don't know this for sure, because there is not a lot of detail to what they exactly what in the assigned posts, no rubric to follow, no checklist, no specific format. This is frustrating for me, because that's exactly what teachers are supposed to be providing to students. Maybe that's the point of this module, perhaps - I don't know. I know that I've been the first poster for most of the assignments, and others have followed my footsteps in the majority of cases.
This module is was supposed to take 9.5 hours from Jan 31-Feb 8. I spent 17 hours doing posts, responding to posts, researching, and writing in my thinking log. That's 2-3 hours per day on average, on top of my normal work after school including prepping for the new semester that just started on Thursday. The next one has to be done by the 15th, and I'm supposed to spend at least 10 hours on it.
Long story short - I have no time for life. I'll try to post about my assignments (because some were quite interesting) and my new classes, but they will be sparse. Key date? April 15th - all will be done! Wish me luck!
