    words downloads faster!

24
Dont Make Yourself Crazy

  • Consider your own assignments for each section
    and each initiative, and set expectations
    accordingly.
  • Do you want to respond to every students every
    discussion posting?
  • Do you want to post items over the weekend?
  • How quickly will you grade papers?
  • Can you identify mentors within the class, and
    delegate some ongoing responsibilities?
  • Can you allow students to post and police their
    own participation?
