well i guess should make an announcement since some people have been wondering...
long story short my class of 15 when from 14 assignments turned in on time, to 10 or something, to only 6. so i decided to end things before it just got plain said.
i expected a dropout rate of about 30-40% over severals weeks but not over 60% in 4 weeks.
i feel bad for the students who consistently handed their work in but with the amount of time i put in the video lectures and critiques i couldn't justify it.
in the end i learned quite a bit and i hope that pound for pound the students who participated got something out of it. we only got to scratch the surface but a scratch is better than nothing, especially if you're really itchy!
i personally take it as a sign to either approach this kind of thing on a more professional level (tuition/fee-based) or drop the idea altogether. i'm not sure which way i'll go.
thanks to the admins for taking the time out to setup this sub-section, i really appreciated it and i feel bad it has ended so prematurely.
i'm personally archiving the threads so since the class is over i guess you can delete/archive it as well.
