I very much appreciatethe facility to upload photographs,although I found it a little difficult tobegin with as the PC is not as intuitive asis the Mac. OK now. With regard to theIndividual Learning Plan, I found itdifficult to find my tutors commentbecause the "Comment" button was darkand not easily seen.”“Its much easier todo the e ILP onlinerather than writingdown on thepaper.”Moodle is very good. Easy accessto course assignments, info andhandouts all in one place. Socialnetworking with the rest of theclassSorry, but I am too old tofind the LP exciting. It istime consuming and yetanother job to do, chainingyou to the computer!
