The large lectures, and the online grading by
faceless “virtual” TAs, made the course seem
impersonal, and undermined the sense of
accountability that students might feel toward
faculty.
Students were tested much more thoroughly on
their reading than in traditional courses, and
were assigned considerably more writing. More
assignments provided not merely more
opportunities for success, but also more
opportunities to fail.
Students were less adept at electronic
communication and in navigating an online
environment than we had anticipated. Mastery
of Facebook does not imply the ability to
succeed academically online.
