So Google went and got me all excited about the new Course Builder project they’ve got going.
It looks pretty neat.
But to expect a classroom educator to either know- or have time to learn- all three of those things in order make a course means that this was designed for people with heavy web-based development. That might be reasonable at the college level and within the realm of technical studies, but not at the k-12 level. And not with traditional classroom teachers.
So once again, some tech/engineer types have failed on two accounts:
1. They have assumed everyone is just like them, and
2. They haven’t brought in any educators to look at what they’ve made.
I expected more, folks.
