    As a student who has participated in online distance education, I have to say it was challenging for me to form a bond with my teachers who became more like 'graders' than educators. I think the challenge goes both ways.

    One could say the same about a comment poster who does not include his full name and his affiliation in the post. So, your statement of a personal opinion in a comment post (without identifiable personal attribution) is what ... courageous? Yet, the students stating personal reflections within their publicly viewable Twitter accounts is cowardly and an example of an entire generation's inability to openly and honestly communicate with others? Interesting observation and analysis.

    This (Twitter) doesn't seem like a useful tool in this context AT ALL!

    "They were able to test their voices without having to spew it out in front of all the students in the class." This seems cowardly to me. Whats the point of having a class if people can't be OPEN and HONEST and have discussions in person? A great example of Gen Y not being able to communicate.

    Thank you for the comments addressing the readability issue. We are looking into the problems, as it sounds like there is a browswer display problem for some readers, rather than a straightforward paragraph organization problem. We hope to address and fix them as soon as possible.

    Sorry, but this just isn't readable. It has been up for almost a fortnight and no-one has bothered to fix the formatting ! Do you not want anyone to read your posts ? Shame ... the subject looked interesting too ...

    When I look at the text for Capturing the Back Panel, I find it a sea of words... No headings to orient the interested reader as to content. No paragraph breaks to help the reader organize the material into salient groups of infformation. This may be terrific information, but I did't bother to read it. This writer, concerned with concept, is missing one of the most important features when communicating with text. MAKE IT EASY TO READ AND UNDERSTAND!

    This concept is wonderful. It is a wonderful way of introducing today's technologies to today's established standards of teaching. If only there are open minded administrations that are interested in new and creative ways of education, these experiments may be the new way to effectively reach each student.
