— Maricemaria Sitangong
Maricemaria Sitangong, 30, studying business at University of the People, also attended college in Jakarta, Indonesia, where she lives. “Online learning is quite exciting because they give us freedom--when to study how we want to finish as long as we can catch up with the schedule.” And also, she says, “It helps me with my English.” “The textbook is really different from the textbook we have in Indonesia,” she says, and not just because she can read it online or in a downloadable PDF. “A lot of information is practical, not just boring and conceptual, so that we can apply to the real life.” And like Anton and Billy, she likes discussing with other students on the course software, Moodle, or on Facebook. “We have a very rich discussion forum. People have their own backgrounds and experience from different countries, different jobs, different ages. Like a student who is an accountant has a different point of view to the student who works in a hotel.”
