I've now finally watched all the videos - thanks.

I was impressed, I have to say, with the patience of the class who'd given in questions at the end of one class, to be answered the following week! I've tended to find that students (any nationality) want an answer much more quickly than "next week" - though I could see that a combination of that & answering them on the VLE or whatever the Uni has later that day/the next day would provide a useful alternative (and might encourage the students to use the VLE discussion boards, if they're reluctant users, as many of mine are [though I don't blame them if they're on campus students!]). Also useful in that if it's complex material, then being able to read it as many times as you want could help students who're having difficulty understanding.

Also good to see the view point of the International Students who, as far as I could tell, wanted to learn how to adapt to a Canadian way of study, rather than expecting lecturers to adapt to theirs, but just didn't quite know what / who to ask.
