Wow! What a journey this module has been. I really feel that I have learned more here than in any previous module. Being able to go off on research what interests you and then write up your findings as you wish, really ignited an intrinsic drive to do well. As Jesse pointed out, all of our work is on the open internet, for all to see. Couple this with the fact that our classmates are all critically discussing each other’s work, and there is certainly reason to stay motivated. I agree with Rich, that to some degree I have felt like a real writer at times, and besides from all of the content knowledge that I have learned, it is certainly worthwhile acknowledging all of the other skills that I (as I’m sure we all have) have improved/ picked up. For one, my writing has definitely improved. Furthermore, I am sure that our research skills have improved, having to research each week in at least one area, and more if we were to give a decent response to other people’s posts.
Thank you, Jesse, for a fantastic module, I hope it is recognized as the success I see it as and continues and progresses further.
