about virtual instruction

It is ironic that a course about virtual instruction is one of the worst online courses I have taken.

!The course is designed in contradiction of all the principles it preaches--there are no forums for the students, there is no way you could contact the instructor, the instructor keeps reading badly, stammering like a first-grader, speaks monotonously and there's no interaction whatsoever!Furthermore, there are mistakes in the quizzes and you have to choose blatantly wrong options if you want to get the 100% score!Although the subject matter about Virtual Instruction is pretty interesting and the instructor made it sound like the most boring thing in the world!Many of the links are outdated or not working at all and often the documents she refers to are 10 or more years old.

about online learning

The Coursera LMS is friendly, and I learned a lot about online learning and virtual instruction.A Special thanks to our instructor Mrs. Cindy Carbajal, that was outstanding.

This course is very informative about online learning methodology.i like it much and gain huge amount of knowledge.Thanks I find the video a little old-fashion and the supporting material hard to navigate.Content however was great, at the exception that it is no so easier to apply to non US-audeince This course was useful but many of the resources were missing and the forums did not work.

no forum

Some questions in the test are not well worded and perhaps because of fear of negative feedback, there's no forum for the students to discuss the course content.

I also found a blatant error in one of the external resources recommended by the instructor--it said ALFRED Einstein received the Nobel Prize, when they actually meant ALBERT Einstein (and since there's no forum or any connection with the instructor, I can't even report the error).

The videos talk about forums but there is no forum.

very informative

It was very informative, well-structured and coherent (unlike the instructor's videos).

Otherwise the course is very informative.

at times

However, when I wanted to go back and reread for clarification, I found the transcript to be poorly edited and at times almost unintelligible.

This was a good course, a little hard to follow at times but very beneficial.

video lectures

As an example: iNACOL (National Association for Online and Blended Learning) is referred to many times in the video lectures and was transcribed in the text in a number of different ways: "Ian Nicole", "Inacles" and "iNickel."

I really wish the people who put this course together has taken the time to read and edit the transcripts of the video lectures.

test questions

Finally, many of the test questions themselves are irrelevant to the content of the course.

The test questions are insane.
