Week 11: Wrap Up
What were my favorite discoveries or exercises?
I enjoyed all of it but especially learning to Blog, posting to Flickr, knowing more about Podcasting, leanring of some productions tools I can utilize such as lists and google docs. I might also try Wikkis and social networking sites in the future.
How has this program assisted or affected my everyday work?
It has made me take a look at some tools I did not know about or use and learn more about them. I do now or plan to use some of them such as Google calendar, Podcasting, Flickr, lists, and Blogging.
Were there any unexpected outcomes or take-aways that surprised me?
There are more new technologies than I thought that I can utilize in work. In the past, I might have just blown some of them off without even considering them.
What could be done differently to improve this program?
I really liked the pace of it and flexibility to do it when I had time to fit it in. Maybe use some IMing times to discuss some of the topics more in depth? That would allow more hands-on practice of some of the technology as well (much like the blogging each week).
If another enrichment course of this nature were offered in the future, would I try to participate?
YES!! The MP3 player was a nice incentive/bonus too!
