#23 - Can I get a HALLELUJAH?!
What were your favorite discoveries or exercises on this learning journey?
Enjoyed Flickr and YouTube the most. Very happy to have found an online to do list at Voo2do.
Were there any take-a-aways or unexpected outcomes from this program that surprised you?
I wasn't expecting to be excited about Zoho because I have ready access to Word at work and home, but when I realized the implications for patrons, I got very excited - I think they will be, too.
I was also surprised that some of these exercises were hard concepts for me to grasp. I think I'm pretty good with computers and usually catch on really fast. When I stopped to think about it, I realized that I'm a very logical person and most software is logical - it has a rather defined purpose and when you click A, you get B. Social software and web applications, however, are not so cut and dry. When you click A, you get B-Z in often random order. This was hard for me to grasp at first. But once I had this realization, and knew I needed to stop looking for the logic, it became easier.
What could we do differently to improve upon this program’s format or concept?
I think we definitely would have liked a little more time - I know we still have until the end of the month - but you know us, we want a chance at all the gold! But the format and the concept were excellent. Encouraging teamwork was a big plus!
And last but not least…
If we offered another discovery program like this in the future, would you again chose to participate? Absolutely! I learned a lot, I had fun, I had to seek help from others who usually seek help from me with computers, and most importantly I found several applications that will make my life easier!
Great job Helene!! Thanks for the brilliant idea!
