Review of Assignment?
Hello. I just want to mak sure that I’m not missing anything. I posted my Assignment 4 on the Dashboard about 1 week ago, and still have not received any comments. I have not received any notifications that it’s been reviewed. No rush. I just want to make sure I’m posting content correctly and have visibility into my notifications.
Hmm….I’ve submitted a few times already via my dashboard/assignment 4 area.
But now that you are no longer reviewing all assignments, perhaps you’re not getting the notifications?
I’m not sure.
Hey Kei Mori – assignments 1,6,12 receive Faculty Review and all other assignments will VERY SOON live in a special area called the Student Showcase. MatadorU Faculty receives special notifications for assignments for chapters 1,6,12.
Does this answer your question?
I’m very disappointed. I read some discussion that you will go back to the old structure where all our assignments will be reviewed by faculty. And that a deep dive on 1, 6, and 12 is NOT enough to learn about travel writing. Maybe for the professional writers, this is fine. But for novice writers like me,
We paid $350 with the understanding that MatadorU is a 12-week interactive learning environment where we can regularly receive feedback from instructors. Not it’s just 3 reviews?
I need you guys to please re-consider the former process. Thanks.
Am I correct in my understanding that although we are only being reviewed by the faculty for Chapters 1,6 and 12, those reviews will be extensive and you will be considering our work from all Chapter lessons until that point? We also have the student showcase where our assignments can be commented on by our peers; some of whom have been members of Matador and MatadorU for years? Do the faculty engage in the student showcases as well?
The Faculty and the Editorial Team frequent the Student Showcase looking at work and looking for talent. We may not be commenting or offering ‘feedback’ but we are there and pulling up great work to be published at Matador network.
Hi I submitted my first assignment on the 20th of the month and am waiting for my feedback on it. No hurry but was wondering if there was an issue with my notifications as I had posted a few comments on other student’s blogs where they had replied but it didn’t show up in my notifications so just wondering if I’m doing something wrong. Do let me know. Thanks. Enjoying the course so far.
Your assignment should be next up tonight or tomorrow. Very sorry for the delay — I’ve been travelling without much Internet access. Should typically only take 4-5 days for feedback! If this happens again, just send me a private message and I’ll follow up.
