I may just be typing as a point of frustration, but I'm sure this person in my online course is a SS.
A week before class began, our professor sent a chain letter explaining another professor had passed away and the class would open later than intended. Somehow the school planned to mesh all of the deceased professor's class into our online forum (which totals enrollment above 300 students). The first day of courses a student e-mailed EVERYONE in a panic (sent a mass e-mail to 300+ people) begging for help looking for the class online:
-WHHYYY can't I find da course?
-Hello?? Any1 else lost? This class lost me! Help me!
What happened to e-mail etiquette? All I did was forward a copy of the professor's e-mail to her and leave it alone. Since class opened, I have received no less than six or seven e-mails from this person A DAY.
-HELPPP ME!!! Where is our HoMeWoRk?
-N E 1 else super confused??? Our teach must not know what he's doing, I'm paying Goood $$$ to be in da class and this is TERRBLE service.
I wish I was lying about the content of these e-mails. They are daily, they are awfully stupid, and I can't block them and the professor is just too busy handling 300+ students to deal with this one. I'm very tempted to write back how she shouldn't be taking an online course if she can't figure out the basics of even opening a folder (clearly labeled HOMEWORK once you enter the class). It's been obnoxious, why would she think someone could hold her hand throughout the entire thing? It's been four class weeks, so either someone in the mass is helping her or she's being ignored; I've only seen two drops and she didn't yet....
