    This course provides perspectives on teaching and learning outside the sphere of normal pedagogy. Leaving ways of teaching that you are very familiar with takes courage. You must be willing to make mistakes and learn from them when you engage in new technologies. This course gave me the inspiration to change my classroom.

    As we are in the digital generation, knowledge and application of digital technology helps teachers and students to ease understanding of difficult and abstract concepts in science subjects specially chemistry, physics, biology and engineering. Where resources to facilitate schools become limited as in developing countries, digital technologies can solve the problem by substituting actual practical classes by virtual ones. these technologies also provide opportunities for online learning without ones presence in school or college.
    I, therefore, appreciate this online course to continue with modifications such that it could be applicable for different levels of the teaching-learning situation.
