Last night I played with my igoogle page on my own and I think I was somewhat successful. I was actually proud of myself. While I was gone yesterday my husband did his own reading up on RSS feeds and started one (I think he just couldn't stand the idea that I might teach him something techy....). So this class is not just impacting me.
Today I hope to figure out how Wikis work and see how I might use them in class. After the reading in the book I am thinking I like the blog part better for day to day work, but that Wikis would be good for projects. Need more info on the program mentioned that keeps track of who has added/changed the wiki in order to help with tracking students.
