I missed the deadline. Just could not get geared up to write extensively in response to the prompts. Now I can’t participate in the reviews and see what others submitted. So that is a significant component of the course experience that I don’t get.
For a course that bills itself as open, and encourages participation on your own terms, this seems to be just more of the usually – instructor directed, big commitment to submit a high-stakes assignment by a specific due date, no late work accepted, barrier to follow-on activities that likely provide important insights into course material and process.
Am I missing something? Is this what you expected? Somehow I thought this might be more different.
