The invisible cats appear

Yesterday I held office hours (all day) for the online students, in case they wanted to come in, and some actually did! Some had questions, and some, I think, just wanted to be sure I wasn't some ELIZA-type instructor emulator--not that the university wouldn't prefer that as a cost-cutting measure.

I may lose my techno-union card for saying this, but there's something about face-to-face interaction that's impossible to replicate in online teaching.
