"I thought I would
not be able to learn as much as I would in a classroom. I was impressed
with how I was able to stay caught up in the class and it worked out
better than having to go to class everyday and worry about falling asleep
in the lectures."
appreciated being able to work on my own, but it was hard to stay motivated.
I had to become more responsible because I did not have anyone reminding
me to turn in homework."
"Some professors know
how to use it and some don't. If they all knew how to use it correctly
and to its high standards, the the Web could be very helpful."
thought I wouldn't like having to use a computer for a class. I figured
it was a bad idea because it meant NO human interaction. After taking
this course, I realize how important computers as tools are. I was able
to learn by DOING, not listening to a lecturer. I was able to experiment
and learn at my own pace on my own time, which is very, very nice when
you are a busy college student!"
"I like traditional
classes better. I tend not to work as hard and forget about things when
I don't have to go to the actual class."
I have really
enjoyed being able to access course information from my home computer.
It saves me a lot of time since I do not live in Ames. The Internet,
in general, is a great tool."
"I like Web-based learning
and think it is appropriate for some classes, but for others we need
traditional style teaching. It was nice to experience something new
and I think in the future Web-based learning can be used very effectively
with traditional style teaching."
was apprehensive about Web-based learning at first, and since I wasn't
too sure about how it worked, I put off doing assignments, but after
I got the hang of it, it was easier to make it a routine to check the
site every day or a few times a day."
