My name is Sarah Phinney. I've been involved in the adult and higher education education sectors for a combined 23 years. Twenty years ago, we were delivering distance education by means of loaned VHS cassette tapes, booklets, and one-on-one meetings with students to review their work. How far we have come since then! I've taught and helped manage courses on seven different learning management systems. The journey and those we help educate on the journey is what keeps me motivated.

@mzimmerman Thanks for sharing your thoughts. As I said, I have no authority on this subject, and was just throwing out one idea. I may be totally off base, but I find it odd that it would report so m...
