My first time teaching online

was ages ago. Nearly a decade. Wow. But I recall my decision-making process fairly well….well, at least I think I.

I’ve created a brief overview of the experience, which I’ve presented by way of slideshare, as follows:

Reflections on the experience of creating the slideshare:

I found it fairly easy to upload my powerpoint, but I wanted to use music instead of me talking as the audio. That I found to be fairly difficult to do! In fact, I had to have help to figure out how to upload an mp3 (thanks Ted!).

Also, if I ever try this again, I will need to do much, much better with the timing. I either need many more slides or a much shorter music track!

A room of my own…

…would be pretty cool.  As it is, my work seems to be spreading out in our home, creeping across and into spaces formally designated for cooking, dining, living, and so forth. A pile of papers here, a stack of books there, an unattended computer displaying a page I was viewing at some point or another.

Ah, who am I kidding?  Even if I had a room of my own, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t stay put. Isn’t that what better tech is all about? Access to information, the ability to connect and create, anytime and anywhere?

Glad to be getting back into the swing of things this semester!
