Yesterday my Human Motivation prof emailed me the midterm. I haven't even looked at it yet, but from its mention in the syllabus it appears very much the same sort of thing The fact that I have two weeks to work on it bears that out. Gonna be a bit of a tiring week, as I still have regular classwork, too. Discussion board is really, really heavy on research and composition. Again, posts are much more like short papers than the give and take of discussion as I'm used to it.
Anyone who says that online and CD-ROM courses are a joke should take these and see how funny it is.
