I’ve started to set up the Blackboard hybrid class and another class that will use on-line references. Well ya’ll (southern accent applied here) know that just the IDEA of creating a well balanced class gives me a panic attack. I started the Week 1 and “Start Here.” Not bad! I imbedded an image of my dog talking about some of the expectations of the class (a bit nerdy). My BIG “I’m all that and a bag of chips” came when I signed up for a lifetime membership ($60.00 but its a tax deduction) to WonderShare. I created my own video/slideshow that my students can access in the “Introduce Yourself” section of “Start Here.” The vid may be a little on the dramatic or hokky side but I’m so proud of it,I don’t care. My computer didn’t blowup on me once and (although it took me over 10 hours to do because I’m a technoneophyte and I kept losing the data) I think it was worth it. I mean, I did this. Okay, yeah I’m bragging but I working with the computer gives me so much anxiety and this made me think, “You know, I might be able to actually be successful at teaching on-line.” So,here’s my sharing.
I’m kinda psyched. I started….somewhere.
Feeling all that,
