Rant # 2 short

Posted on September 6, 2016


So the student has finished the ALEKS lessons but says she will need to YouTube all week to try to figure out what they mean.   I say, “but there’s a ‘review’ option!”

… only to discover that yea, you can get a review option but you cannot ask for an explanation.  You have to blunder a guess first.   IMHO, Design Fail.

Our materials should be “fault resistant.”   When a student wants to understand, there should be links to explanations.   Let’s evolve this stuff, eh?
