REFLECTIONS ON NETS-T-3c:

When designing the online version of my mathematics methodology course, I realized that my students and I would be treading on virgin terrain. Preparing a guide that would point out the pitfalls and anticipate the volitional, cognitive, and affective blocks seemed like an appropriate thing to do. In keeping with NET-T-3c, I have attempted to communicate the relevant information about this course to those interested in its content. By creating a website that students could explore, I would give them a medium to determine whether or not online learning was for them. By creating a website, I was able to determine which of my teaching practices and assignments could be digitized. I have spent my 2010 sabbatical learning about the variety of digital-age media and formats that are suitable for “distributed-learning communities.
