Week 5 reflection.
Ok, writing an article for someone else to read is way out of my comfort zone, but I am passionate about what my eLearning office is doing with Bb Collaborate and that made writing the article a lot easier. Once I started writing it was hard to stay focused on just one area that we use the product. I am proud we won an award at Bb world for our efforts for using the product, but it was a team effort of my office. Bb Collaborate and Bb IM are very user friendly and the way they are pre-set in the course, so that there is very little for the instructor or the student to do to start the initial connection and we feel this contributes a lot to its success.
I enjoyed the readings this week, but I have felt rushed to get both class assignments finished before the weekend because of family obligations. Just so you will not think I fell off the earth – – My 4 sisters have chosen this weekend for us to start dividing our parents “stuff”. My father died last year, my mother died 3 years ago and I live next door but my 4 sisters do not and they have not taken the time to come back so we can go through our parents “stuff.” This will be a very long and emotional couple of days for all of us, so I have tried to get all of my work – work done and my school work done, and not have any of that to worry about. Thanks for listening.
