This week wasn’t at all what I expected. I think I have a handle on all the technology so that really isn’t an issue. What I can see myself having a problem with is making sure all the lose ends are tied up every week. Just when I think I have my ducks in a row, I realize there are a bunch of ducks I didn’t even know I had to worry about. I have a feeling right about the time I get it all figured out and organized the class will be coming to a close.
This week was mostly about getting accounts set up and situated within the class. That part wasn’t bad at all. I understand how all of them work and how to navigate them for the most part. I’m still not really clear what the mind map will be useful for and it wasn’t as easy navigating as I thought it might be. I really like the gloging and video making. I have a feeling I will continue to use it after the class is over. This includes the video casting. My laptop has a built in webcam, but I can’t seem to figure out how to use it. The timeline is pretty cool and while I don’t know that I will find much a use for it everyday, I can think of times when it will be helpful during a large project. At the very least it looks cool as it grows. I already have a Youtube account so that was easy. However, I haven’t actively used it in ages so it took some time to remember my password and sign in. When we had to sign up our ePort site I was thinking, “What now and how am I supposed to run all this at once??” But after using it today I can see how this will help me organize everything else and keep track of what needs to be done. Fingers crossed that ePort is everything I hope it is.
Now my biggest challenge is to master the integration of all the medias. Next week I will have to play with it more to get used to how it all works. This especially goes for Mindmeister. It seems easy and the videos make it seen super easy but for some reason that ease didn’t translate well I actually attempted it. I’m not even sure how exactly it is supposed to help us. If anyone has any insight as to how we are supposed to use it I would appreciate it. Even though I understand how to use everything, Im worried about remembering to integrate everything every week. It feels like I posted the same 5 things over and over again to every place I could think of. Again, Im sure this will streamline itself and become much less confusing soon but for now I feel like I forgot something.
Week 1 Glog
This week I split my glog into two parts.
Updates about all the technology are
and actual physics thoughts are audio.
Week 1 audio for your
Neat video! Physics Rap
This guy is pretty good, I just wonder how long it took to come up with the words. Just something fun to start off the course.
