The main thing I wanted to reflect on in this post, besides stress and being the anti-blogger, is the design of my courses. It’s no wonder D2L drives me crazy… there are so many options, so many design possibilities, so many ways to screw up. I am very meticulous about details. I make sure every content item is within a folder, I make sure most course files require little or no scrolling, and I always try to use a large, readable, sans-serif fonts.
Just as there are pedagogical things I consciously do in a face-to-face class, so too are there things in online classes. Yet I wonder if anyone ever notices.
