My Life Online!
Australian Educational Computing, v17 n2 p31-32 Nov 2002
In this article, the author shares her experience in using online teaching and learning with students. She describes her journey that has continued from hesitant beginnings into what has almost become a life online. As a lecturer in Arts, the author was often faced with the threat of units being slashed because of low numbers. One such unit was an elective entitled Dance in Education. In order to save this elective and to experiment with online teaching and learning the author worked with a web editor to create the unit, Dance Online. The author's rationale for placing her dance unit online in 1996 is still relevant today and best sums up the reasons for her life online.
