I’m taking an online course through our local junior college called Internet Literacy. I really didn’t know what I was getting myself into and to tell you the truth, it is a miracle that I’ve been able to keep up so far. Thank goodness the instructor allowed three weeks for the first few assignments. There were so many things to remember to do, write, read and post that I had missed a couple on the first attempts.
Today, I took my first official test (up until now they had been only practice tests) and I got a 19 out of 20! I was shocked. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t know all of the answers… guessed on a couple and looked up the rest, but I made it through.
I can’t concentrate and learn like I could when I was younger. I have to read things a couple of times, and double (triple) check my assignments so it takes a lot more time… but I’m getting through it. I promised myself I wouldn’t drop the class no matter what and so far I haven’t regretted that commitment.
