Joining the course & expectations
Hi! I am one week old to WikiEducator. I have introduced to you last week when I joined the group. I am the Director of Centre for Distance Education of SNDT Women's University, based in Mumbai, India. I have been involved in distance education as 'distance educator for over a decade now and have been using technology in practice.
I am interested in joining this course and have some expectations too :
1. This course should actually help us design more courses in our own institutions so it should be practical based and not just theory based. Don't just tell us 'How to do it" make us do it.
2. After completion of this course, the moderators should actually give certification for certification of completion of this course which, i am sure people will appreciate.
3. The technology used has to be available specially with people like us who are in asian countries.
I hope these expections will be taken into consideration.
Congratulations to the great people behind this initiative.
Hello Chandrakant Thank you for joining the course. It is wonderful to see interest from other countries. At the moment you are informally participating and this is absolutely encouraged. However for us to assist you with one of your expectations: "After completion of this course, the moderators should actually give certification for certification of completion of this course which, i am sure people will appreciate," we will need to discuss this further as it does require formal enrolment or a recognition of prior learning process.
If you could let me know some contact details I can be in touch later in the course when you are ready to be assessed; in the meantime, I am looking forward to some discussions with you. Bronwyn
