My name is Steve Deighton and I am a teacher at Mountain Park School in Calgary. I teach Junior High science and math and have been doing so at various schools for the past 24 years. I have no experience in online teaching, however this is my third EDDL course. I decided last year that after a 23 year hiatus, I needed to take a few more University courses, so here I am. It has been an at times frustrating yet enjoyable and enriching experience for me and I’m looking forward to this new learning opportunity.
One question I have about online learning is how can one overcome “poor” computer skills or a lack of experience and find success in this format.
