At the end of Day 1, I was struggling with choosing a platform for video conferencing. On Day 2 I woke up struggling and in pain from the previous day’s asthma attack. I really just wanted to stay in bed. The email thought I sent out the night before hadn’t gone out. I fixed that, recorded my daily video and began to research.
After much research I decided to take advantage of the G Suite 14 day free trial. After the trial it will cost $6 per month. I have not yet decided if I will go keep G suite after the trial is over. I can decide later.
I started grading assignments and my students are amazing. They had wonderful insight into the assigned reading and shared deeply personal experiences. I went over the readings to get ready for the live call and and made my teaching notes.
The live call went really well. Afterwards I was exhausted. I posted some more lessons online, graded more assignments and adjusted the schedule. Then I decided to do an online workout but my internet was down. I was so grateful the internet had not gone down during my call.
Doing this course is challenging and exhausting but also so enjoyable. I really hope I can do it more often. I can already see so many changes I can make to the course to make it more enjoyable for participants. I really hope it makes a difference in their lives!
