I feel like the comments in this course are helpful to get to know the other students without actually meeting them. I always love getting comments on my blog and project from other students and they are always encouraging and helpful. I think that my comments are helpful too. I try to find something in common or something I particularly enjoy about every other students' blog post and put that into my comments, so that they know I was really reading their post, not just commenting to comment. The comment aspect of this class is one of my favorite parts of the course.
