I liked how the units were broken into larger chunks to be digested over two week periods. Looking at larger blocks of time I feel helped see what technological innovations, resources and political struggles drove or defined an era. The three textbooks also had very different approaches which I found to compliment each other.
I liked the layout of the course. The larger windows for completing each unit were helpful with my schedule. I enjoyed participating in the commons discussions. I also enjoyed the book project, reading the book and making the site, more than I would have expected. Overall really enjoyed the class and have been impressed by what’s been done outside of the D2L system and have found it for the most part fairly straight forward and easy to use.
