         I could stay up as late as I needed to or get up as early as needed; I could work on things a bit at a time during the day (like I am doing now), etc.

 

         This was the best online course I have taken at West Georgia. I have taken online courses for master's degree and am halfway through media certification. I feel the reason for this is the strong organizational skills of Dr. *****.

 

         I am a stay-at-home mom so I do not have time to go to class everyday.

         I thought the online portion of this class added to the content of what we learned the latter half of the semester, that being social networking sites.

 

         I have finally become familiar with courseden. I like the small icons that let me know on the opening page if I have new grades, assignments, or emails to read.
