I took this online course deal for just one extra class this term. And it's killing me. My traditional students can basically piss up a rope, because they're a perfectly standard distribution of talent, responsibility, and entitlement issues. But the online group? They're better than me. They get it all done before I can think of more. Sometimes I cue up what I want to be work for the MONTH, and in a few days I start getting "Is there anything else we should be doing?" e-mails. I can't keep up. And sometimes I get side tracked by the idea that maybe there are only four of them using multiple names.
