Online learning By Julie Thorndyke

Online learning

 

email instructions…

a web-based learning platform—

how can he

chat up female students

in this virtual classroom?

 

no hiding

from the virtual librarian

if the overdue notices

don’t find you, she has

an avatar to hunt you down

 

pixelated…

confabulated by email

he longs

for the sound

of a human voice
