Exploring Digital Culture

A Picture is Worth a 1000 Words!

I’ve spent the last week preparing for my first MOOC experience: eLearning and Digital Cultures through Coursera. Mind you, the class doesn’t start until January 28, but I figured I should get my self organized. It’s a good thing, too, because it appears that I am not alone….fellow MOOCers are busy setting up Google+ workspaces, Playlists on YouTube, Pinterest sites, Flickr Commons, a “Virtual School”, fully diagrammed — creating videos, and blogging, just to name a few. You would think we were already 2 weeks into the course.

In reading many of the blogs that have already been published, I was beginning to feel behind the curve and that I needed to start my blog. And I hate blogging!!

Most of my writing is for technical manuals, grant writing, and progress updates. Short and to the point — executive summaries — if you will. I also like to edit the product so that every word is important. it goes back to my 10th grade English Teacher who always said, “when in doubt, cut it out.”. I have a friend who blogs, and to him, it is all about storytelling. I don’t do stories. So, I guess this will be my learning curve. I am much more of a visual person, so I expect that I will try to include a picture that is worth a “thousand words.”
