Sign 'O the Times

My on-line classes have gotten all fancy this semester. The previous program director/hematology professor retired last December, so someone new has stepped up. We do our on-line classes using Blackboard, which lets the professors post lectures and assignments, as well as tests and quizzes for students to do on their own time.

However, this semester, the professor's lectures are available as podcasts through my iTunes, with accompanying power point presentations. Fancy - and cool. He's even trying to work out a joint chat session so that we can ask questions and such.

Now, I just need to get the new book, as it is highly necessary, but I won't have my student loan until next month. I checked the library, but it's a new book, and they didn't even have a previous edition.

I do love the podcasts, even without the book to follow along, though, because I am an aural learner in part. My dyslexia makes it hard to just absorb facts while reading only.
