What a week. Still making some mistakes here and there, but I am hoping that as the course progresses, this will happen less. I am starting to get used to navigating the course site and making sure I have everything completed. I finally figured out how to view my classmates work, so I have a better understanding of how other students are interpreting assignments.
Assignment Bank Work
I misunderstood this assignment. With online courses, I typically use whatever day of the week I do not have synchronous classes, and I dedicate that entire day to the work for the course. This is what I have always done, and even what I did last week for this specific course. As Friday is the day I have set aside to do this course’s assignments, I had not realized there were daily creates on twitter until Friday. I am now aware of this and will continue to do my work on Fridays, but for the week ahead so I do not miss out on assignments again.
So, unfortunately, this week I only have one daily create to share, but I had fun making it. Maybe fun is the wrong word, as it was an image of something that made me feel empty inside. I remember
Participating and Connecting with Class
As I had mentioned before, I found where I can see all of my classmates work, and I find that very exciting. It is a bit overwhelming trying to make sense of all the work required, sometimes it is helpful to see an example of how other people have done things such as customizing their blogs. I had not realized how much freedom you have when doing customizations until I saw the blogs of fellow students. I spent an embarrassingly long amount of time looking through themes but have not decided on one to install yet! I spent some time looking through the work that everyone else did this week and commenting on their posts. I have been commenting on their blog posts which I am hoping is the right location! Being able to talk to one another makes this class feel more like a community as opposed to some other remote classes I have taken.
