Based on my philosophy of distance education, I believe I am in the middle "static-dynamic continuum with Collaboration. In reference to Communication, I would say I am static and with Content generation, I am closer to dynamic but not there yet." I can begin to move toward the dynamic end of the "static-dynamic continuum" through the use of the multimedia principles. Remembering that students learn better from words with graphics or pictures than just words alone, I have learned that learners are capable of creating their own knowledge but may need guidance so teacher presence is of the essence.
