Due to the coursework and feedback which was provided through Casenex in order to obtain my Gifted Education Endorsement, I have learned and implemented so many new strategies that have helped my gifted students become successful, happy, excited learners. I have had such an enriching learning opportunity whereby my administrators, my peers, my students, and their parents have noticed a wonderful difference within the learning environment in my classroom. I strongly encourage each teacher to take this coursework, even if they only work with one gifted student in their teaching career. It will make a huge difference in the educational experience of the student and teacher!

The CaseNEX online learning environment is truly ahead of the curve. The content of CaseNEX courses is challenging and thought-provoking, and the online classroom community is perfect for learners who appreciate a flexible schedule. Earning my endorsement in Gifted Education through CaseNEX was one of the most positive and rewarding experiences I have had in sixteen years as an educator. The faculty and staff at CaseNEX are superb, and offer an unmatched level of support to their students. I highly recommend the CaseNEX experience.

I took a CaseNEX course last summer and was really surprised by the sense of community I felt in the course. Even though the class was online, I felt as though I really connected with the other teachers in the class and our instructor. I would often find myself looking for posts from certain people because even though I only recognized their names and had never met them, I felt as though I really agreed with things they had to say and knew that I would be able to respond to their comments. I'm glad that FCPS offers online classes because it is really easy to fit the course into your schedule and participate in the online discussions when it is convenient for you.

The 5-step method used in the CaseNEX online courses fosters a comprehensive approach to viewing all sides of an issue. I found this to be helpful both in practice and in theory. After reading, and discussing the cases you feel comfortable expressing your own opinion, and better informed by reading the opinions of your colleagues. Again the procedure allows for a better overall approach to any classroom problem or situation because it encourages you to view varying aspects and viewpoints before brainstorming a variety of approaches or strategies.

It amazes me how technology has grown in such a short time span. I recall taking an online course and disliking it because of the informalities and technicalities it generated. CaseNEX and OCPS allow us to change that mold. They have created an interface that is user-friendly and OCPS has created a medium for administrators to communicate without having to travel. I look forward to the upcoming weeks and future courses.
