1. Adverbs of Time: In a blog, you really shouldn't use them. I find myself starting posts with words like next or then or now when those words really don't belong here. Example, the first thing I wrote on this blog is at the bottom. So, when I start a post with the word "then," it creates a problem. The reader hasn't read that happened first yet! It seems that you would want to reverse the order of your posts... but then the reader would have to scroll down to get to the latest item. It's a conundrum.
2. Surprise: Just when you think it can't be done, you click on something AND-IT-CAN! So often I felt that I was at the end of my Blogger's rope. But by reading, and re-reading, things Steve put up about embedding and links and stuff like that. In the end, I was able to upload everything I wanted, in the order I wanted. That makes me happy.
Overall, I am really pleased and excited about what I've learned in this class. I hope to use all these pieces of information daily. :)
Thanks for stopping by.
Over the years, I have been working on getting pictures just the right size to send to friends and family. Being overseas, I was much more cautious in the size of the photos I would email.
Here are the photos I used for PP105. The picture with more ice is the "bigger" photo. The guy with me is my husband. :)

I took a favorite song of mine and just read the words aloud while it played. So, here you go... Beck
A description of what I hope to accomplish in this class…
I hope to accomplish many things here at Creating/Using Multimedia for Online Instruction. Mostly, I’d like to get familiar with Wikis, podcasts and blogs. Reason being I think several NNESTs are looking for on line support and training. The above mentioned applications can help reach this group of wonderful teachers. (I’d also like to learn a bit about Moodles, but I think Principles and Practices has a whole course on that…)
I think because I was away from the
for so long, I am missing some key technology points in my education grab-bag. So, I hope to get a firm understanding of how to produce a user-friendly blog that uses Wikis, podcasts, video, and the like. US
Huh... looking back, I notice that I wanted to learn how to use Wikis in this class. And yet, when faced with the opportunity to use on, I went with Blogs. Funny.

I guess I'll be making a blog.
