I love taking all these online classes. I love learning. I love seeing how others teach and design their learning experiences.
I hate taking online classes. Seeing what others are doing and wishing I could be one of them. Wondering if the people I’ve worked with the last several years have ever actually taken an online class … maybe that’s it … maybe they’ve never actually seen eLearning done well …
Or maybe they’re scared … like … cavemen afraid of fire … or … Puritans who think some woman growing herbs for homeopathic medicine is a devil-worshipping witch … maybe my ideas scare my co-workers … perhaps they’re like isolated, primitive tribes seeing a photograph … they think me doing quality work would steal their soul.
I can think of no other reason they so militantly insist on producing only crappy work as if even reaching toward mediocrity would give them radiation poisoning.
I have to get out of this field. I have to. I have to change careers before my soul dies of radiation poisoning.
