So, I went all week without posting. Well, since Monday. Which is abnormal for me and I apologize. It seems that when I had strep throat last month, I developed mono. So, I have developed a bad habit of taking naps in the evening. Naps that last 14 hours. Yeah, going to sleep at 7PM is something new for me.

But tonight I have managed to stay awake and am happy to be posting. Although I can't guarantee the merit of this post. I promise to add eyecandy at the end so you at least get something out of it :-).

I'm getting ready to team up with another member of my RWA chapter in taking over the running of our online courses. This makes me nervous, because I have no clue what I'm doing. Hmm... not the best advertisement for our courses huh? Well, she has all the classes for this year scheduled. So, it's up to me and my partner to run them.

We have our duties all divided up, so I think it'll go okay. I hope. But we were talking about online courses and our experiences. Then I realized I haven't taken many. And so I thought I'd pose a question or two to you all. Have you taken any online courses? Are there any that were so good, they stick out in your memory? And, what did you like most and least about taking them?

Thanks for the input! Now here's your treat:

Oh April, I hope you feel better soon! I hear that one can take a while to get over.

No, I haven't taken any courses on-line before either.

Hugs on the mono!

I've taken an online course for continuing ed. for teachers. Didn't care that much for it, but I met the requirement. It involved having to post a certain number of times on the bulletin board and visit websites.

Yikes! Feel better soon!

I don't like online courses because I get so bogged down and I can never catch up.

Whoa, that is some treat! Thanks!! :-)
I hope you feel better soon April. It's good that you are listening to your body though, and giving it the sleep it needs.
Good luck with running the online course.

Take care of yourself, April. I've heard too that mono can take a long time. Of course, when I was back in high school we'd wish for mono since we didn't have to go to school for months. We were so dumb! :)

I got my bachelor's through online classes and really loved it. Haven't participated in any re: romance but have lurked. Good luck with that - I'm sure you'll be fine.

Thanks for the input! And the well wishes!

I've taken one or two online classes, but I've had trouble with keeping up with the lessons posted. By the time I read one, it's too late to ask questions on it. Oh well...
