Of the 28, 21 students connected to the streaming, but 7 had left before the ending. The shortest participation was only just 2 minutes. The student typed his attendance on BBS when the class began, but left from the class quite immediately.
Responses to the “During-the-Class_Quiz”:
1st Q=18, 2nd Q=19, 3rd Q=17, 4th Q=19
Six students did not answer all four questions even though they were in status of participation.
Teaching: V-te morau, V-te itadakemasenka. Abstract of Japanese honorific system
Issues and Problems:
In this online streaming teaching, I couldn’t pay attention to each student’s nature or tendency. It is like I am teaching toward one monolithic mass of students. But each individual student is different from others. I could know some small nuance by a particular student in particular moment in the real class room. And I could talk to one by one. I think the online teaching has a huge disadvantage in this regard.
