Transcript of Evaluation of Virtual Learning

Comparison
Effectiveness Evaluation
That variety of interaction made the lesson very effective for me, forcing me to fully engage with the material. However, this might not be the best method of learning for everyone, especially those who like to learn by wrote.
The End.
Future Experiences
I would like to try to emulate the interactive aspects of Rosetta Stone in any future lesson experiences I might undertake or design. I believe hands-on lessons that force students to engage with the material provide the best opportunities for learning.

Clarity, Ease of Use, Aesthetics of Interface
Despite stating upfront that no translations would be provided, and giving no other instructions on how to navigate the course, Rosetta Stone is very intuitive to use. The numbers along the bottom show progression. The placement of objects on the screen and repetition of sounds imply their use. And meaning is inferred from the information provided. These features result in an interface that can't help but be aesthetically pleasing.
Length of learning experience
Personal learning "success"
As I worked on the lesson, every time I started to wonder how much longer I had to go in each section, I would find that I did have a few more pages than I would have liked, but few enough that it would have felt like cheating to stop. So the length was challenging, but not overly long. As for personal success, I felt I learned a lot from the lesson. It validated assumptions I had made about grammar and sentence structure while watching Korean TV, and I was then better able to retain the information.
Personal satisfaction/Opportunity to advance
I was very happy with the Rosetta Stone learning experience. I felt I learned a lot, and the interactive interface kept me involved in a way that simply reading text does not. However, Rosetta Stone does not allow the opportunity to advance beyond level one without a substantial financial cost. Personally, I don't think the lessons are worth the asking price, which is unfortunate, as I would continue with the lessons if the cost was reasonable.
Trying to compare this experience to my "normal" way of learning is difficult, because I'm not sure what my normal way of learning is (beyond procrastinating.) I tend to try everything I can think of to make new information stick. In that regard, the Rosetta Stone lesson is very similar to what I do. Because it constantly presented me with new ways of interacting with the material.
