  1. Hello 615! Sorry that I'm not able to attend the actual face to face meetings, my work teaching schedule doesn't allow me to make it to Ames by 4.

    As I was listening to the 2nd class, it was interesting to hear the discussion about lecturing and online classes. I agree that the amount of lecture time really depends on the course content. Someone stated that the professor has to find a way to maintain a balance for the students. I think that it is imperative that there is a way for the students to share their ideas and gain insight from their peers. I find that my online experience with this course is ideal, because there is a blog where we can communicate and further the discussion that was held in the class. The blog will allow me to have a voice and stay connected.
