Foundations of Virtual Instruction

I am currently doing this course and to be honest I'm extremely disappointed with the instructor Cindy Carbajal. She's reading all the time and not very well at that (sounds like a first grader). Her videos are haphazard to say the least, information is not organized in a logical sequence, and it all sounds as if she's just copied some quotes from here and there. Her reading is very annoying and the only good thing in week one was the interview about the Flipped Classroom with Chris O'Neal. It was very informative, well-structured and coherent (unlike the instructor's videos). Some questions in the test are not well worded and perhaps because of fear of negative feedback, there's no forum for the students to discuss the course content. I also found a blatant error in one of the external resources recommended by the instructor--it said ALFRED Einstein received the Nobel Prize, when they actually meant ALBERT Einstein (and since there's no forum or any connection with the instructor, I can't even report the error). Overall, I am not happy with the first course of this specialization and sincerely hope it will get better as I move along to the next few courses! :-(

Nadya is taking this course right now, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
