Online vs In class

From what we were told last class there is some consideration going into making ECE2524 into a purely online class.  I believe that this would be a bad idea.  While teaching this subject in a classroom is a bit of a challenge, it is extremely helpful to have a teacher to go talk to and to actually see.  Additionally, having an actual class room give an extra opportunity to make sure the students are motivated, or at least keeping up with their work.  A purely online class could be finished in 2 weeks.  Whether it is the first 2, or the last 2 is determined by the student.  Also, the classroom setting allows for true collaboration between students, while online would remove a large part of the team element.
