The first week was interesting to experience. There were many comments and the discussions seemed to be lively. Many of the concepts were perceptive but the main impression was of energy as there seemed to be postings almost by the minute. I wonder what student responses to such a busy course are.
The course I took as a student (on Corpus Analysis) had many more facilitators and they were more visible as a result. I hope that students do not feel that there is too little presence of the facilitators but they are only human and cannot be present all day every day.
