So much for getting home work done on time...

So, this is it. My final blog post for Extension 2.0.

First, lets tie up loose ends and talk about UM Connect. I haven't used it much for online meetings, but I have used it for troubleshooting website issues. If I need to see what someone is seeing on their screen, setting up a UMConnect meeting works really well. I've been able to take over their screen and make changes too. I haven't had much use for it as a presentation tool yet, but I'm sure I will at some point. And now I know how...

And now, the wrap up. I signed up for this not so much to learn for myself, but to learn what others in Extension are learning. In my role, I'll need to provide support for Extension 2.0, and it is nice to see what people are doing, what they're learning, and what they like. It was also nice to learn a bit along the way.

If we were to do it again, I'd like to see a bit more interaction between the participants. I could get to everyone's blogs through the links on the course blog, but I didn't really look at anyone else's stuff, and I doubt they looked at mine. Comments on the blog were few and far between as well.

It might be nice to create a group on one of the social networking sites to have a better place/way for ongoing dialogue.

But, overall, I thought this was very well done. I hope the information can be translated into something that is around for a long time...
