What UIowa Online Students Are Saying

The assignments have been enjoyable. I like that I can apply the weekly readings to my own classroom. These assignments are more connected to what I am already doing or something that I plan on doing, which I find beneficial. The workload for this course is very manageable. I enjoy the discussion questions and being able to respond to classmates. I also like that I can learn from others’ posts and I feel like I get to know everyone that way, too!”
I have really enjoyed the texts. They are both interesting and research-based which makes the reading enjoyable and very applicable. I like the flexibility of an online course, I can do the work at times that work for me. The workload seems appropriate for an accelerated course like this. I think the structure is very intuitive and was easy to figure out.”
Due dates and workloads are excellently spaced throughout the week. The instructor’s feedback and interactions foster rich discussion beyond that which is generated by the students. Comments on each post and assignment help encourage and guide me towards getting the most out of the course materials and content…The workload is perfect for educators currently working in the school year. It does take time to really process and synthesize the content, but is manageable alongside the duties of working in a school.”
