1. My favorite things were library thing, you tube, and downloadable ebooks. I found these exercises fun.
2. 23 things has affected my lifelong learning goals by giving me more understanding and useful ways to communicate over the internet.
3. The fact that I could actually make heads or tails of some of the concepts with little or no help greatly surprised me.
4. The improvement that I can see that would make these exercises better would be to
make sure that there is someone on-site or readily available to participants when they need a little more explanation than is given in the emails. We were very fortunate at TCFL to have Jo Powers and Jane Steenken to fall back on.
5. I would definitely participate in another program such as 23 things.
6. My experience with 23 things was both frustrating and interesting. There were times when I thought my brain would start smoking. It was frustrating to know that the answers were right in front of me, but I couldn't see them. It was interesting to discover that there is so much to learn to enhance my knowledge of the on-line experience.

Thanks Jennifer!!

THING TWENTY-TWO--downloadable audiobooks

I really enjoyed this. I thought the netlibrary thing had way too many steps to it. However, Gutenburg was easy and fun to use. I did not like the computer read books. Way too slow and kind of scary. I could see myself using this if I had an MP3 player that is. It also makes me wonder why we stopped this service at TCFL. Jo? Scotti?

This was a bit confusing for me. I tried yahoo, but had trouble adding the feed. I tried, but needed a plug-in. I then tried podcastalley and was successfully. Although a bit cumbersome, I succeeded. I did need some assistance and I don't think I will be using many podcasts. An experience.

THING TWENTY--you tube

You tube is mucho fun. People will share anything. I chose this video because it showed me that even in Iraq there are good times and that there is time for levity. God bless our men in women of the service.

THING NINETEEN--Web 2.0 awards list

I chose to explore biblio. I found this a good site for finding used books at a good price. However, I do not think it would be a very useful tool in a library setting. It has reviews, but they seem to be all written by individuals rather than an "expert."

THING EIGHTEEN--online productivity/google docs.

I set up an account at google docs and played around with it. I wrote a document and sent it to Jennifer and myself. It was interesting and I thought it would be very useful in an office setting especially if you change computers alot. Not all computers have the same software installed.
