For me, it's about learning something that is relevant to what I'm doing. On a daily basis I am forced to use things that I will never need later on, attend workshops that will not improve daily classroom activities. The online classes help me to better myself by giving me tools that will help uplift curriculum to engage students.
I didn't expect the results which I am able to see right now. Looks like most of (so far) value the flexible schedule. Interesting.
