|"is an online campus where you can take a variety of classes from quilt teachers, meet quilt students, share experiences, ask questions, and share photos of class projects - all from the comfort of home. Our teachers and students come from all over the world. Taking classes online is easy and fun and one of the bonuses is the people you will meet.|
Online classes are similar to correspondence courses, but with a twist - you can converse with the teacher and with other students through a forum!" (www.quiltcampus.com/about).
their needs, I believe QuiltCampus (QC) to be a good fit for me. They've since asked me to teach the process for making a stained glass quilt. I had to delay the course, however, when mom became so sick. The staff at QC was very understanding and suggested that I take all the time I need to mourn her loss. Feeling that I now need to keep busy and be creative, I decided to work on a stained glass quilt to decide whether or not the idea in my head will work for this course. Once the quilt is completed, I'll send photos of it to QC, and they will decide whether its something that will be of interest to their students. Then comes the fun part, designing and writing the course. Everything is sent to QC and they put the course online and do all the technical work. I promise to be available to discuss the pattern, directions, etc. with students on certain days through either a forum or email. Since I'm now teaching a dual enrollment English class through videoconferencing at work, this will prove to be an interesting addition to my teaching experience.
