Are you enjoying online school if you have it, if not are you excited for it? What have some of your challenges, struggles or joys of learning from home? I am just curios to see what people have to say about it.

I'm returning to the university so I haven't had to try online school yet, but my past experience with an online class was very bad.  I think I may have even failed the class.

Yesterday my professor assigned us a speech that has to be about coronavirus. So we have to record a video, post it on YouTube, and email it to the prof. The catch is, the prof wants us to have an audience of 3-7 people. And if we can’t do that, to have an audience of two. The only two I have are my grandparents, who work full time jobs. They aren’t going to have the time this week to help me with this speech, so rip my grade. So far online classes are definitely not my thing and aren’t beneficial in any way. It truly sucks. I just want to graduate :/

Yeah I don't understand how teacher wants us to turn in assignments and such. Each teacher wants something different, and its confusing. Also no kids are really even doing it so it makes the classes very small.

They're trying to get teachers in my area to use Microsoft teams, a shitty discord, and Zoom to contact students. So some teachers have sent out videos/assignments through those and have planned some zoom chats for questions. I still have one teacher using edomodo because he's older. Also, all my classes are AP, and they've shortened AP exams this year. So I've technically learned all I need for the exams, which are going to be online and not really secured. So hopefully class won't be too hard. Sorry to people who are having a bad experience; so far this isn't horrible.

Yeah, we are using Microsoft teams it is so bad. The teachers did not explain a thing to us about how anything works. I understand the program but there are no schedules or how attendance works or anything.

Get a few more GFL slaves to watch your speech and have us clap ferociously when you're done.  Don't forget to cough once or twice during the speech and say it's nothing.

I like this idea @Mejillayou could do that as the next event lmfao

I try to avoid online class all together because I am not self discipline enough to focus on studying with my Cisco 1 Network Introduction and my Linux Installation and Configuration. Although I was given tools like VMware workstation and Packet Tracer to  use to emulate, I do miss exploring and configuring the hardware at my college

CPT is a very good resource to have, as well as VMware.

So far, we've been asked to join a poorly set up discord where we have one class a week that lasts 2 hours about the updates of coronavirus. Why can't I just watch the news?

Not enjoying a single bit, I´m at my senior year (fifth year of college in Brazil), I was about to start a project for my final paper, aaaaand, not anymore, since I can´t go to the lab.

 

I´m only having like 2 classes out of 6 online, not really online tbh, one, about sheep culture, our teacher records videos, send us papers and ask us to elaborate questions based on the papers, my other class, physics, we only have to hand some assignments (and I don´t even have trouble doing that, is basically the same ones from last year), other than that it´s pretty boring.

We don't really have a formal class tbh, teachers just post assignments and expect you to do it at the end of the day. It's nice because you can do it in the morning and other stuff later.

 

However, it's EXTREMELY unbalanced. Most of my classes give almost no work but I'm usually getting 3-4 hours of work from bio. It's usually taking up most of my time and that's the worst part. All my other classes usually give 5-10 mins of work, if even any. I don't like this compared to my actual school schedule but it's not absolutely terrible.

 

Zoom sucks though

 

I do prefer school so I can actually have a life outside the internet and talk to my friends, but I like being on and playing with GFL people.
