It is 7 p.m. Friday and I am IRKED. That is not quite the word I had in mind... but it will do, since I don't want to have to flag this for language.
2 weeks ago I handed in 2 assignments to my history prof. I am taking 2 distance courses - both from the same professor. Now the next 2 assignments are due.
It irks me to have to hand in 2 more assignments without getting any feedback at all from the first ones - if there is something I am doing that she does not like, now I will no doubt have done it...whatever it is.... again. I am going to be incredibly irked if I lose marks for stOOpid stuff.
I am also incredibly irked that she has not bothered to answer either of my emails.
I emailed her last Friday, using her university email address.
So on Wednesday this week, I happened to notice that on the 'meet your professor' page in one of the two packages, a different email address was given - so I emailed THAT address too.
It is not like it was a complicated email. I asked 2 questions.
- how concerned should I be about memorizing dates and names?
- how are assignments & feedback returned?
I pay MORE for these courses than for in class courses in which I get 3 hours of lectures, personal contact from the prof, and responses to my emails.
We are now in week 5 of the course and I have heard NOT ONE FLIPPING WORD from this person. NOT ONE.
I think that, on Monday, I will go and find the office that manages the distance learning courses, and go in and ask what the process is supposed to be re: contact with the prof (knowing full well that she says in her packages to email her 'anytime' - I guess it is safe to say to email her any time since SHE CAN'T BE BOTHERED TO RESPOND TO EMAILS).
I will also ask what the complaints process is.
Have I mentioned that I am IRKED?
I am seriously IRKED!
