Week3/Blog #4 My Opinion - Blogs
Blogging is a great way to connect to your classmates and the world, and I really enjoy reading and commenting on many of my friends comments and ideas. However, one of the issues I have with this venue is the due dates. I really like to check in on students who I don't have a connection with, and I am constantly having to reply to the classmates that have completed their assignment early. I have spent the week checking blogs to find new people to connect to, and I seem to have to reply to the same students over and over again (usually the same ones each week).
I would like to see a different method of assigning due dates for things like this. I know the instructors don't want to restrict or dictate these assignments, but I think I would like to see a more 'micromanaged' timeline. For example: Tuesday, the main blog is due - Thursday, the reply is due. This would give all the students access to all the blogs of the week.
This is not a comment on Joe's teaching, but a suggestion for all Full Sail course directors. This situation has occurred many times over the months.
Thanks for listening!
