the course goes LIVE today!

… or maybe it was yesterday. In any case, my summer fully online course, ETAP640, begins and i am, like every semester, nervous and excited. VERY.  : )

I am nervous becuase:

  1. i am always a little nervous before the term starts. I wonder who will be taking the course? Will i have enough time to do everything? Will everything work the way i have planned/intended? What problems will i have this term?
  2. i have had to make many changes to the course for this term and i am concerned that i may not have found and updated everything. The course code was changed fro ETAP 687 to ETAP 640… So all the sites including my blog, diigo group, twitter stream, links posted everywhere needed to be updated… i am sure i missed something somewhere.

I am excited because:

  1. i can’t wait to meet and get to know my students.
  2. i LOVE teaching this course!
  3. i can’t wait to see what i learn this term. Already i have learned a lot from updating all my sites. I learned how to migrate a blog from this to this. I learned that you can change the URL of a twitter stream, but not the URL of a diigo group… I learned something new about youtube. I am playing with voki, jumpscan, and vyou this term in my course.

Wish me luck!!  : )

    Oh my..I am feeling a bit overwhelmed but as you say once we get all of the resources set up we should be good to go; I hope so anyway. I am looking forward to this course and learning about all the ways to connect and learn online. I think I have about half of the items set up.
    I have never used diigo or jumpscan so I am preparing for the learning curve.
