    Hi Holly,

    Thanks for re-blogging my recent piece! I was excited to see an intro posted here. The link appears to be wrong to the original post. It can be found at: http://www.geteducated.com/elearning-education-blog/5-things-real-students-hate-about-online-learning-degrees/

    We have posted a second piece this morning — Online Faculty Reveal and Respond to 5 Common Online Student Complaints — that may interest you AND we are looking for more online teachers who might want to respond or chime in with their own experiences about online learning.
