What I thought about my teacher, fellow students, and assignments
I didn't communicate with any of the other students in the class because I'm just the type of student that sticks with myself and gets my work done. I typically don't socialize with other students unless the start a conversation with me first. However, I did view a few of their assignments and I thought they were all wonderful. They all helped give me ideas for my own assignments.
My biggest problem with the assignments was trying to pick a tech tool to use for each assignment. There were so many to choose from, it was hard to pick. My computer also had troubles trying to use some of them. Other than that, I enjoyed completing my assignments because they were new, creative, and different than all of the other boring papers I have to write in other classes. I was able to use my own personal touch in each assignment.
I absolutely adore Dr. Gutierrez. I've never felt as though a teacher cared quite as much as she did. She was always very prompt on posting grades and making sure to comment on every assignment. There are some online courses I've taken where I literally never conversed with the teacher or got any kind of feedback other than my grades. I took a course once and I didn't even know if the teacher was a male or a female. I feel like even though I never met Dr. Gutierrez, I know her much more than I expected I would have gotten to know her. I think her assignment choices and the way she scheduled things was helpful as well. Things are typically due on Sundays in other online courses, but I liked having things due on Friday, or occasionally a Monday or Tuesday. It helped keep me from stressing all weekend about finishing up my weekly assignments.
