I continue to learn about using blogs and cooperative learning of technology

Working in the lab with my co-students in the program has been very productive. There were several instances where we were able to attack a problem together and reach a satisfactory outcome. For example, I had been frustrated in my inability to delete a post on one of my blogs that was posted by me, but under a username of one of my students. I wanted to replace that posting with a correct one. I had been unsuccessfully trying to delete it for about two weeks because I was trying to delete it from the editing page instead of from the comment itself. Yacine, who had done this previously (deleting the infamous naked acrobat posting that appeared on her blog) was able to quickly demonstrate the correct procedure.

You are right about collaborative learning Barry. Although I have never been one to enjoy teamwork, I am slowly learning about its value. I now feel comfortable asking my classmates (especially you Barry)about things I cannot figure out. A lot of knowledge comes from experience and we are lucky to have 2 consummate instructors in in our cohort; Barry and Michael. Let's all take advantage of this blessing...

Thank you Yacine for your kind comments.

I agree with Yacine, it is more comfortable when you can approach your classmates about related material. Sometimes people do not wish to share information for selfish reasons. We are in a collaborative environment and all information is good information as it relates to classroom education.
