My Name is Jason Stockford.  I have created this blog as part of the requirements for EDC 525 at URI for the fall 2016 semester.  I am currently a professor of Mathematics at CCRI and I am taking this class for professional development purposes.

I am currently teaching a full load and then some (eight classes this term) and one of them is an online/distance learning class.  With regard to the online class, it has been a learning experience.  When I was in college there weren't as many options to take online courses, so it is a challenge to teach a course when one has a lack of experience from the student perspective.

One thing which is challenging, but fruitful in this class is the use of free online blogs.   In my teaching experience I have used programs such as Sakai, Blackboard, and My Math Lab; however, I have not used a blog for teaching or learning purposes.

For those who are interested, here are a few links to the relevant info for my online course:
