Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course is part of the TAH major (tourism and hospitality), it is an online class which for me was a challenge but Tracy does a great job at keeping it interactive. She posts lecture videos, has a weekly to do list and has us do projects that engage us with communities outside of the online world. We also have threads were we can post our presentations and have peers review our work to get better insights on how we are doing in the course.
In TAH 241 Tourism and Community Development we are learning from the stand point as though we are developing a town for tourism. Our main work through out the semester is to pick a town or city and we have to do town analysis of the town to see if they would be ready for tourism and what is needed to further develop the town. This is done through various reports and power point presentations. Most weeks we either had readings or video lectures to watch and the other ones we had various reports and power point presentations due. I really enjoyed this class because it was mainly focused on what I want to pursue with my degree; developing tourism as an economic resource. A lot of our research forced us to get out into the communities we were studying and interact with locals and the way they live to develop tourism document reports. This gave me a lot of experience and insight to how developing tourism would work!

Advice for students:
I would advise to stay on top of the work, it makes it easier and it will help you stay on track. I would also suggest the more you care about your presentations and reports the better your grades will be! I believe little details matters in things such as this and I am getting an A in the class as of now.
