I'd welcome comments…
- Online teaching isn't as effective as in-person teaching.
- Today's tools suck.
- If content is king, then community is queen, pope, emperor, and president-for-life.
- If you don't know how to tell if you succeeded, you're going to fail.
- If you don't take the time to explore what other people have done, you deserve to fail.
