Online studying platform offers flexibility. One can study at their own pace depending on their schedules and other responsibilities. However, one needs to have motivation and self discipline because the flexibility can create lazy tendencies and as a result, lead to failure.
Traditional face to face learning work on schedule. one can have various classes per week. Motivation is always present because regular consultations with lectures remind us that we need to do our school work on time. However, If one has other commitments, they could be compromised.
I find this course (digital literature) very interesting because of its out look on digital humanities. Because of this course, i understand what digital humanities is and has allowed me to go deep into it. There are a lot of digital projects out there, libraries and archives and I am so proud to know that Namibia has a digital library. Furthermore, I get to browse the digital libraries and archives for free.
Reading the Digital Cocaine: A Journey Towards iBalance got me thinking about how depended we are on technology especially the internet. In a way it has become unhealthy for humans; spending hours and hours on the internet trying to find information about something only to end up copying exactly what the internet has brought to light instead of trying to understand something first, analyze it and think about it just so know what you are going to write.
what I love about this course is that I can access it any where, any time even in the comfort of my own home. Learning so much this Sunday. Recently I have just found out I have been blogging about this course at the wrong platform. That's why my first posts don't show in the entries about this course page. Sad but I'm improving.
