Student Comments

1. I took Distance Learning because:

I like how the distance learning classes operate and I was interested in studying psychology. - I enjoy language and wanted to learn Chinese. - It was fifth year of Spanish for me and it just happened to be in the DL room.I wanted to take a psychology course and my school didn't offer it. - The AP History class was only offered through the DL. - The music theory class was only offered through distance learning. -I wanted to take French IV and the only option to do so was in the DL class. I wanted to experience a new and interesting way of learning and I wanted to take a class that wasn't offered at my school. I needed to prepare for the SATs - I needed another class and marine science has always interested me. - I wanted to receive the college credits, and this was the only form it was offered in. - I wanted to get experience and take more difficult classes.I had taken these types of classes many times before and I always enjoyed meeting new people. - I think it's a good learning experience and having a DL opens more educational opportunities to schools.

2. What did you like about Distance Learning?

Despite the fact that the schools are miles apart, you feel close to the teachers and the students. - Distance Learning was an opportunity to meet new people and experience a different learning style. - I enjoyed interacting with other students to share different thoughts and ideas.I thought the whole system and setup was interesting, and I really like Mr. Howard, my DL teacher from Wells. - It was weird at first but you get used to it. - It's a fun way to take a class and it makes you pay attention because it is interesting.That our class at our site was very small. With only six kids it was easy to all work together. - I like how different it is than other classes. It was very hands-on and the activities were fun and different. - I liked how it felt as if I were in college.The fact that there are always interesting classes like film studies or forensic science.I like how the teacher paid attention to each classroom, and I also liked the addition of the other classmates.It created an opportunity for me to take a class not normally offered at my school.

Student Comments

3. What didn’t you like about Distance Learning?

Sometimes it's a little hard to hear people talk, sometimes people hit the microphone and it's too loud. - I didn’t like that we couldn’t hear and speak clearly with other schools, and the computers failed a lot. - At the beginning of the semester we really couldn’t hear the other sites it made it frustrating.You don't always get the same attention as the people in the classroom with the teacher. - The teacher wasn't as interactive with the class as he could have been had he been in the room with us.Some of the students in my class were disruptive. - The teacher had very little control in her own class. - People constantly banging things near the microphones.The period schedules are too different. - I didn't like that we had to start 5 minutes late because the other schools schedules didn’t match ours.I did not like how, if I needed help after class, I couldn't go see the teacher. - It was hard to get extra help from the teacher, and the teacher wasn't equally focused on each room.

Lack of interaction with or lack of attention from teacher or other students.

Disruptive students or lack of discipline.

Not dealing effectively with bell schedule or school calendar differences.

Lack of extra help or lack of one-on-one with the teacher.

Student Comments

4. What changes would you suggest for the Distance Learning classes?

I wouldn't change anything, I like it.

I would highly recommend adjustments be made on the sound so that it's easier to hear. - Better audio quality. - Better volume control. - New TV's, bigger room, better PC's. Have less sensitive microphones. - Make it possible to have different Elmo/camera/computer combinations on the televisions.More opportunities to meet host class and more hands on work activities. – That the teacher maybe take trips to the different schools and interact with the other classmates.The only change I would make would be to have more interaction with the other schools. - The teacher should pay more attention to students from other schools.To better screen students for potential behavioral issues. This was quite possibly one of the most disrespectful classes I have ever attended.I didn't like the time delay between our start and their start.

Student Comments

Most frequently suggested changes:

Technical improvements and better student/microphone/camera positioning.

Visits by teachers to remote classes and or combined class field trips.

More balanced attention to classes and better interaction.

More discipline to deal with disruptive and disrespectful students.

Deal more effectively with bell schedule and school calendar differences.

Note: Comments indicating that a student did not feel any changes were necessary were more frequent than all of the categories above combined. “I would not change much in the classes just offer more of them at the school.” “None, what’s being done works fine.”

Student Comments

5. What surprised you about Distance Learning?

How easy it was to get used to the cameras. - How organized it was. - How closely it resembled a normal classroom. - How easy it was to adapt to a new learning style. - How much like an actual class it was, we learned the same amount in a new way.Nothing really surprised me because I've had a class here before.How well you can talk to and see the other schools. - The fact that we were able to communicate with students from other schools with few technological problems.The concept of distance learning itself surprised me, I did not know our school even offered courses like this until I took the class.The technology and the interaction between the other schools.I was surprised at how easily and efficiently the class worked with the different sites communicating.I was surprised that different schools had very different schedules this was a pain because we had to wait 5 minutes before class and 10 minutes before the class is over.

Student Comments

(If you answered “No”) Please describe what you wish your teacher could have done.

A good job was done, but I feel the teacher needed to try and give equal attention to students at both sites.I wish he could have been more available for extra help.He seldom paid attention to the camera's whereabouts and oftentimes we could not see him.She could have had more control of the home classI wish he would have contacted us and kept us better updated on our grades.

(If you answered “Yes”) Please describe the efforts the teacher made to compensate.

He visited each school and met with the kids. - She always made sure both schools understood the material, and she visited the other site. - He organized a meeting for all the schools to get together.She gave everyone equal attention. - When either school was having technical difficulties she would allow for us to have more time to complete it, or to work on it outside class. - She made sure to ask the other students questions and made sure they had all their materials.She made extra notes on our work to try to help us understand material better since we couldn't go to her personally. - She always offered to meet after class with students to provide extra help. - We had study sessions and several meetings with the other students.The teacher used blackboard for handing in work on the computer. – She always let us e-mail and responded quickly when we were working on projects in the computer lab. - She made sure using email, phone calls, and during class that all were involved and understood the material.She had a BOCES technician come and fix the equipment.
