I do feel that this programme has launched me into the Brave New World and what an exciting prospect! While the time taken and the pressure exerted was on occasion overwhelming, we all know that nothing good comes easily. From a professional point of view, I am definitely better equipped to deal with our patrons, particularly the techno-savvies. While I accept that I will probably never be completely comfortable in this realm, being aware of at least some of the tools out there and having a basic understanding of how and why they work, is hugely beneficial.
From a personal point of view, I can't wait to play, explore, learn and expand on just about everything we've covered to date. With no time constraints and no pressure, I will re-visit and use some favourite sites like Wikis, e-books, flickr, del.icio.us and FaceBook. I need to spend time playing and customising my blog (and profile)by getting my head around Image generators and organising photos. Certain things I will not spend too much time on, such as Rollyo and podcasts (except iTunes).Although I did not come to grips with RSS feeds and would probably not use them much, the frustration has been huge, so, on principle, I will go back and master them. I will keep blogging and hope many others do too - what fun it's been delving into everyone else's thoughts, with virtual anonymity. There is a degree of satisfaction and sense of achievement but far more enticing is the road ahead. Yeeha!
