Juan Carlos Lopez

from New York , United States

Juan Carlos Lopez enrolled in a Essentials of an Online Course course in 2013

The course was very useful, particularly with regards to the information I gathered.

Introduction

Juan Carlos Lopez, Chief Editor, Nature Medicine, 46 years old, living in New York City.

Distance learning

Distance learning is a great idea in terms of giving you access to high-quality courses created elsewhere to which I normally would not have access to. Though I don’t think I get as much out of it as somebody who can pace himself and devote more time to the learning experience.

Teaching an Online Course

The course was very useful, particularly with regards to the information I gathered. The toolbox of teaching strategies that one can use when teaching online was particularly revealing. I would certainly recommend this course to anybody who is seriously considering creating or teaching an online course. As I said above, the major gain was the information I received. It was very instructive, and I look forward to use these skills and tools when my colleagues and I start designing our own courses..
