Overall, I was very pleased with the class. I was nervous going into it because I had never taken an online course before, but once I figured out how to do everything, I enjoyed it very much. The parts of the course that were successful for me were the lectures, the readings, and the blogs. One part that was unsuccessful for me was the discussion board because I felt like there should be more discussion.
I learned many things this semester about writing essays. One major thing I learned was how to do a counterargument and rebuttal. I also learned how to add more audience appeal throughout the essay and how to make the introduction more interesting.
I feel that this course has met most of my expectations. I feel that I have improved my writing overall, have learned to organize my ideas in a successful way, and I have improved on stating my ideas clearly throughout the essay. Overall, I am happy with the class!
