Fried Friday: Do your students feel like this?

Yesterday we posted an article that talked about a faculty’s responsibility to students. Does it include answering all questions? Does it require you to hand-feed your students? Today we want to add a little humor into your day with the following video clip: “What if your GPS acted like a typical user’s guide” which we think relates to the last post.

Tina, thanks for finding this clip. Not only is it funny, but it also is right on target with our challenge to provide information to students without overwhelming them and without doing the thinking for them. Well, watch the video, you’ll get the point!


And have a great weekend!

P.S. Don’t forget our banner challenge is still going on. It’s not too late to submit your entry. We’ll vote next week! Click the banner to view our current banner challenge entries. Thanks everyone for participating!

  1. This reminds me of course navigation instructions. Tom Kuhlmann provides some good tips on e-Learning course navigation in two blog posts:

    Do You Really Need Instructions on How to Use an E-Learning Course?

    More Than a Dozen Ways to Navigate an E-Learning Course

    1. Thanks Nicole for these links. Tom has such a great way of stating things simply and clearly. Also nice to have someone absolve us from creating layers on layers of “how to click” instructions. Love it! Kathi

    Oh my gosh, we could develop some really funny tutorials for faculty on this premise. Faculty and students could also have some fun with this kind of activity. Tongue in cheek presentations that take the long circuitous way around.
