Give an overview of your experience in this online training.
It was a unique experience and a convincing demonstration offering experiential learning through technology. My confidence in online - training/ distance education has grown.

List three things that you liked best during this online training.
The whole methodology, the disciplined approach yet the flexibility. The depth of the content and the professional, streamlined delivery of the whole training has a class of its own.

The most significant part is played by the facilitator whom I would call a MENTOR who oppened a whole new world of SLM for us Dr. Sanjaya Mishra. He was a great source of inspiration and encouragement. It is heartening to know that we have people like him around who work overnight for their students. I remember his being online even at midnight.

List three things you disliked during this online training.
I found nothing to dislike and found nothing lacking.

List the content areas (if any) that you think need further discussion.
My humble suggestions: 1. Most of us come from exam-centered, spoon-fed education which is mostly teacher-cenetered. So lessons could be given in old manner and then shown how to do in self-study manner. Understanding the difference is critical as many a times we tend to study the old way. We need to change the perception.

2. Not all are tech-savvy so have some difficulties in handling the tecnologies. Some more guidelines - may be a small tutorial on using things could be given. The video was a great help.

List content areas (if any) that you think were missing in this online training.
I found nothing missing. It was very comprehensive and complete.

Your suggestions (if any) for future such online training. Give this opportunity to teachers from schools and colleges. Encourage retired teachers to leaern SLM and offer their knoweldge for all.

And finally, remember me whn you are offering a new course in SLM/distance education.
