I loved the course except when I accidentally submitted the wrong paper for a graded essay. I couldn't send in the correct one once the other was sent in. I ended up getting a zero for that paper.

Good feedback with first drafts. Topic presentations were very informative, better than my personal previous experience with face to face classes.

I liked the writing the papers, and choosing my own topic for a majority of it because I like to express myself and i write better when it is about something of my interest.

The lesson presentations were very helpful because you could have the voice over on turn it off. As well, I could go at my own pace. I didn't have to worry about deadlines for quizzes. I was also given plenty of time to take each quiz
