Student Review of ed2go Online Course – Creating Web Pages

“I want you to know how important your method of teaching is to the older student—maybe to others as well.  I am age 70, and though pecking on a keyboard for some time, I’ve never really understood computers and the internet. Thanks to ed2go, and especially instructors like you, you especially, this old-timer has learned more and more this year. When I turned 70, I kind of felt like giving up on doing anything else in life because I felt like I had been left behind.  Technology just ran off and left me in the dust. But my wife challenged me to learn everything about the internet and computers I could learn, and then maybe, she said, I would not be so depressed. 

This is the hardest computer course I’ve taken, and I’ve taken five courses this year—beginning to here. But I must say to you that your method of teaching is really wonderful. One of the most unique ways you communicate is to remind us what we’ve learned: when, where, and how it applies to the current lessons. You are a great teacher in my book, as older folks say.  Keep up the parts where you tell us how to apply what we learned—reviewing it for a sentence or two to help us recall the principle and technique we are applying in the current lesson. That teaching method has helped my mental attitude which had always dwindled as each lesson progressed. But with the “review notes,” I had the confidence to move along. Also, printing what you call screenshots really helped.

When the great-grandkids ask their Grandpa how in the world did he know how to put all the family photos and stories on the internet, I think I’ll just tell them to remember a guy by the name of Alan in their prayers before they go to bed at night.  Very APPRECIATIVELY, Ken, Sr.”
