This summer I am learning that a format that works for one online class may not work for another. After spending two years refining my multicultural communication class online, I was confident that the format would transfer nicely to the online cultural anthropology class I was developing. Now that we are in the second week of the quarter, I’m finding that is not the case at all. I find it fascinating that problems students are having in the cultural class are not occurring in the multicultural class. The structure of the classes is the same as well as a couple of the assignments that deal with the discussion board. I am trying to figure out the differential.
