Having this course online will be beneficial to our students because most of them are single, working, mothers. This will allow them to receive an education and enter into a profession, still being able to maintain their family responsibilities. I feel that having courses offered online as well as face to face offer students options in their academic program. This I hope will allow students to have a more flexible schedule and be more involved in their learning.
I am also doing this for a selfish reason. I am looking toward retirement in a few years and hoping to do some online teaching in nursing while I can enjoy retirement. More and more colleges are going to online teaching and this will also make me more marketable in the future.
So, as I begin this last course in this online teaching journey I look forward to the challenge and the excitement of putting digital content to my online courses. Let’s go Digital!!!!
