(Learning) From a Distance

(Learning) From a Distance August 18, 2014

This is the follow-up to my song parody about online learning, “Message Sent on Moodle,” although I actually had the idea for doing a parody of “From a Distance” on this topic first. Hope you enjoy it. Here are the lyrics:

From A Distance

From a distance

An online course can seem

Like something that can be done with ease

From a distance

The flexibility

Can mislead you to think online means a breeze

But from a distance

There is loneliness

And responsibility

With the campus gone

And a TV on

Learning may not come so naturally

From a distance

Books sit on a shelf

When there’s no one there to nag me but myself

And from a distance

I feel on my own

So far from anyone who can help

But from a distance

All these challenges

Are an opportunity

To arrange my day

Balance work and play

Learn that no one else can learn for me

The prof is watching us

Prof is watching us

Prof is watching us from a distance

From a distance

I find I belong

Online learners are a community

From a distance

I can take control

If I learn or not depends on me

And from a distance I could recognize

That deep down learning’s the same

Whether far or near

Whether there or here

What I make of class is what it will be

The prof is watching us

Prof is watching us

Prof is watching us from a distance

The prof is watching us

Prof is watching

Prof is watching us from a distance
