Have you ever taken a course that's not for a grade? What about teaching one?
You should try it.
Here's what I love so far:
-Students who do not have to be there
-Working toward an outcome instead of a grade
I also love that the courses I'm taking and teaching don't involve:
-Discussion board posts
E-courses are more like nonfiction books than traditional classes. You get to pick them and then start, learn, and finish whenever you want. You can even decide whether or not to do the homework.
Here's link to my current course, You Before School: 4 Weeks to a Self-Care Lifestyle. And, an affiliate link to @leonie_dawson 's e-course about creating e-courses if you're interested. Oh! Also, here's one to Nishantha's upcoming iPhone Home Movies course.
Remember how excited I was to finish my units for my district's payscale? It's like e-courses are the sweet dessert after YEARS of mostly painful online grad courses.
What e-courses have you taken? Any you reccomend?
I'm a teacher, mama, and mentor. I created the You Before School e-course and more. I'm here to encourage and share self-efficacy skills for women.
