Extension 2.0 Wrap Up

Wow! This has been an ambitious learning project to keep up with. While I've learned some new things (Wikis, RSS and feedreaders, and productivity tools), there are so many that was overwhelming to keep up with. I think that I will be able to use 2 or 3 of the newer features (blogs, podcasting, web conferencing) on a regular basis.

I've really enjoyed exploring the online world and probably would not have looked at some of the newer activities without the direction and instructions provided by Amy (for fear of doing something or getting somewhere I shouldn't!). Please offer this kind of self-directed/paced learning again. I would definitely participate if a course like this was available.

Thanks again to Amy for all of her hard work to make this information available!

Web Conferencing

This is a good way to have a meeting or training with many remote locations as well as to capture real-time comments and notes. I'm not sure I'm ready to be the host but the polling feature is a good way to get opinions quickly about a subject or issue. There's always something new and fun in the technology world to keep us challenged!
