It was a good day. I finished up my week two summary and got it posted–later than I had planned, but it’s done! After being the “summarizer” for the first two weeks of the class, I’ve only got week five left to summarize.
I’ve still got a lot to learn about OnCourse, the Indiana University course management system. I posted my week two summary, but it lost all its formatting, including bolding, italics, and hyperlinks when I pasted my MSWord document into the forum window. I went back into the forum and added a post with the MSWord document attached. All my original formatting is there.
I really am enjoying the class and the readings are very interesting. I was very glad that the class was allowed to go on. Thanks, Dr. Frick! Ever since I read Dr. Bonk’s book, The World is Open: How Web Technology Is Revolutionizing Education last spring and found out he taught a class on it, I had wanted to be involved. It’s great!
Now that report cards are out and MAP testing is over at school, and my first two weeks of summaries are done, I will be more faithful about posting here and replying to the posts, summaries, and emails of my classmates.
By the way, Ruth is my wife of over 37 years. She’s a veteran teacher who taught all over the world during my military career.
Please check back regularly. It’s late in Reno, almost 11PM, but even later (almost 2AM) in Bloomington! I must go to bed!
