They shouldn’t have to suffer.

My youngest son is a first year student at Wilfrid Laurier University. Tonight I watched him do an online Economics quiz using WebCT software. I watched him work for over an hour and save every answer successfully. He had one question left, but he had to go to a night class.

When he came home he went back to the quiz only to find that it had saved none of his answers.

It’s great that students can do their work online. However, at the very least the university might consider ensuring that their software works as expected. Software the students are forced to use and depend on demands a much higher level of quality than I witnessed from that WebCT product.Students shouldn’t have to suffer through poor software.
