Week 1 –Introduction
I did a fine job of introducing myself for week 1.
Week 2 – Thoughts on other Teaching Blogs
I responded well to the assignment of browsing others blogs and even listed ones I especially enjoyed.
There was significantly more information to respond to on week three. It took me two separate posts.
Week 4 – Synopsis of Week 4
I had addressed many of the week 4 questions in my week 3 posts, but I did add a few more ideas for a week 4 post.
Week 5 – Thoughts on Week 5
After week 4 I began using some visual images within my posts. I like how they give a bit more interest to the text. I also included some different heading sizes for the fonts in my posts.
Week 6 – Prezi with Audio
I do enjoy Prezi, but I did not post much else this week other than a Prezi with sound.
I really enjoyed Pilar’s video on community. My post also includes a lack of community I am experiencing at one of the campuses where I work. My second post for this week is the collaborative assignment similar to one I might post in a rock history class.
Week 8 – Week 8
This week provides me with many tools to investigate further during break. I, however, am not a big fan of Google +
Week 9 – Week 9
The Ko and Rossen readings on syllabi is interesting and I have already incorporated many of their ideas. I really enjoyed the Second Life event, but may hold off on using this right now for a class.
Week 10 – Week 10
This is the first term I have used a course blog and I include some thoughts on it in this post. I also created a mini web site in Google sites, but I actually prefer Wix and will have to play with it further.
Week 11 – Week 11
Well, my posts have certainly taken on my quirky personality at this point. Much of the material on open source content is right up my alley.
Week 12 – Well, here I am. Thrilled to have completed 12 weeks already, and with a HUGE basket of toys, tools and fun applications to explore over the holiday break. Thanks to everyone; Lisa, Jim, Ted, Vanessa (my mentor), Clare and anyone else who has helped me as I have stumbled through the first half of this course. I may get frustrated at times, but fortunately my Scottish determination (stubborn, pig-headed-ness) prevails.
