Final Thoughts

When I started this class, I was aware of a few of the Web 2.0 tools. I had heard about Facebook, Twitter, Blogger and Flickr. Out of those, I only had used Blogger and Facebook. Everything else was new. I'm still not sure of how to go about using Mashup. I think having more time during class for hands-on would have been helpful. There were definitely many different levels of knowledge in this class. Perhaps going to 2 hours per class would be more beneficial. I really enjoyed trying the trading card and will explore that more as time permits. I am glad to have been exposed to these tools.

Trading Cards

I can see where students could have a lot of fun. I'm still trying to figure all of this out. I'm trying to determine how I could incorporate it in one or two other classes I'm taking.

RSS Feed

I wasn't sure how this would work or if I would find it useful. I like having lots of sites that I visit almost daily in one place. I have to get in the habit of checking it daily. One of the RSS feed is FOXNews.com. to be able to read the articles and not have to search it great!!
