My Journey and Growth in Metaliteracy Part 1
, Keith Cyril Akita, December 10, 2013
I started this course not really having an idea of what to expect especially since it was my first time taking a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). Nonetheless, I had a strong feeling within me that this course was going to be so beneficial to me in my college career, considering the fact that this fall semester is my last at the University at Albany. The concept of Metaliteracy is only getting better  and better from this point and I must admit that it is indeed broader and deeper .... Tue, 10 Dec 2013 05:02:00 +0000 [Comment]

In our second  session of the semester last week, Professor Trudi Jacobson introduced the class to Padlet.

It was my very first time using this free and very simple application.

It involves the discovery of fairly new and growing technologies used in the process of crafting and sharing information in an open and healthy participatory online forum. This is my first time taking an online course and it is good to know I will have a chance to .... Mon, 02 Sep 2013 17:32:00 +0000 [Comment]
