  16. 16. Obstacles, student expectations and reactions to technology  3rd semester students  3 out of 15 withdraw for time management reasons  Tech related, Disappointed with totally online  Didn’t like ANGEL, Wanted some face to face time  Didn’t like posting  Attachments didn’t attach  Server went down  Text didn’t look right in Powerpoints
  17. 17. Revelations  Hardest and most interesting class they ever took  Inspired them to be a part of their profession  Wanted the course to be a year long.  Liked the volume of information gathered  Liked to see what each other posted  Interact with each other so much, don’t have that in face to face class  Liked the scavenger hunts  Liked the difference in having male and female voices  Never met so many students who wanted to learn
  18. 18. More and more each day, I find myself studying items closer and trying to make a connection to a specific time in history. This class and the visit to Hudson exposed me to designs from the seventeenth to the twentieth centuries. It is important to recognize the way different countries and cultures adopted ideas and techniques to develop modern designs in the past and in the present.
  19. 19. Overall, I am extremely glad that Professor Nixon assigned us to travel out there. I had a really memorable time and I think that I took a lot out of the experience. And it ultimately made me more of a complete person. At first, I was unhappy that I had to travel so far out of my way, But in the end, I thank Professor Nixon because I wouldn’t have Ever travelled out that way if not for his instructions.
  20. 20. Made the activities relevant In years that I taught face to face this course. Deep down I always desired that the students would share my excitement about this subject and to my surprise I got that in the online course. I had been over- compensating for myself My presence had been overdone in the room
  21. 21. All ways in which technology enhanced the vital flow of information When taught 20th century art face to face I shifted responsibility / onus to be on the student Through spontaneous scavenger hunts and spontaneous Presentations discussion and In computer lab with 20 machines Online but all together. Had the lecture, youtubes and links open a few days before coming into the room So they knew what you were going to talk about It was a different discussion because they weren’t taken by surprise Lecture notes were always available. Posted before meeting again Review their posts In the past, So frustrating to have a face to face class and Have to generate face to face discussion constantly
