It's quite amazing how much the 'net has changed since I began my trek towards an M.Ed. what seems like a long time ago. It's been two years since I began, but it seems longer.

In the beginning I thought it was neat to be able to register for courses on-line. Now I'm posting videos and paying tuition on-line. (Speakin' o' which -- it helped to pay for the upgrade on their site -- I like the new look ;-)

Notwithstanding my jokes, I'm very happy with the quality of education offered at OISE/UT. As I said a couple of posts ago, I'm also learning a lot about the "foundations of curriculum" in CTL 1000. I love delving into the theory behind curriculum development and delivery. For instance, the difference between traditional -- "sage on the stage" and constructivist "guide on the side" classrooms --- be they face-to-face or on-line-- may not be as cut and dried as it first seems.
