Week 3 Learning Log BOL

Online learning is a unique environment affording the instructor an opportunity to really digest thinking of the learners in the course. Discussion of content and how one processes this information is visible by learners reflecting on their learning and being open for comments that aid in the formation of new precepts. However, this venue is still text-dependent and the question still lingers, for me, if this type of platform is realistic for the Deaf learner. Or, can a just as challenging environment exist online if all the posts were visual in the sense of being ASL instead of English dominant? This will be the challenge for us as we move forward in offering some of our classes online making the program more accessible for candidates around the country. I do believe Wimba is a tool that will help us address this issue but I do not believe it is the only tool. The need to experiment is quickly upon us and we shall soon see.
