Overall, I think this survey about online learning is a good tool to use before taking an online class. One strength is that it gives you a score for each skill that is necessary for taking an online course. Another strength is that it provides feedback to help you improve those skills. I scored “moderate proficiency” on each of the skills. One way that this tool could be improved is if it was a bit more specific instead of giving me “moderate proficiency” each time. Maybe it could have more specific categories of proficiency depending on what students score on each skill. This tool would be helpful for new online learners because it would tell them what they need to work on to become prepared for online courses. This survey would also be beneficial for teachers because it shows them data about the readiness of their students for an online class. By knowing this information, teachers could make sure they provide instruction that is helpful and better suited for their students.
