Week 9- #23

Wooooohooooo, I am done!!

Okay, so my favorite exercises were probably the youtube exercise (because I was very familiar with this site already), and all the easy ones (the first ones, the image creator, etc.). I enjoyed doing this program and I am glad this was offered to us. What I didn't like was all the different things we had to signed up for. Most of the exercises were pretty simple but there were a few that were very confusing and annoying such as the bloglines, technorati, and . I would definitely participate in a another program (especially if more prizes are being offered!).


Week 9- #22

ebooks and audiobooks

I had previously explored some of the Sjlibrary's ebooks. From my experience, I found that they have mostly Non-Fiction and mostly self-help, careers, and other subjects like that. Like other people have already stated, I would prefer to read a "real" book than to sit in front of the computer for hours. It can be helpful to read an ebook when you're doing research for a school assignment so you can highlight and copy information onto a computer document. Overall, I liked this exercise.

Week 9- #21


I went to and searched under comedy and browsed around a bit. I then typed in George Lopez as a keyword and found a podcast that I wanted to play. It actually didn't play from the computer at work. Here's the link though and I will try to play it later.

I have actually done a podcast before. I helped my brother make one for school and it was very cool.

I liked this exercise and will probably use it later to find more stuff.

Week 9- #20


This was, by far, one of the easiest exercises. I am very familiar with youtube and I have used it quite a few times. You can find anything on there. Here's a video I have seen probably a thousand times because I can't get enough of it! lol "Scrubs" is my mostest favorite show and this is where this clip comes from.

Week 8-#19

Library Thing

I took the "tour" on Library Thing and I signed-up for it. All they ask you for is a username and password; that's it! Then you add your books to your "bookshelf" and you can write a review or comments or whatever the heck you want on there. You can join groups and talk about the books. I haven't added any books yet but I will add a few later and see how it goes.

Ok, so I added some books and I tried creating a "widget" but for some reason, it does appear on my blog. Here's a
link to the page I created...hope it works.

Week 8- #18

Online Productivity Tools

Woohoo! I'm almost done! So close, how excinting! :-)

K, for this exercise I signed-up for the Zoho Writer thing. It seems that there are a lot of useful things you can do on there. I tried creating a document and the page was loading FOREVER and so I never actually got to create it. Actually, I checked right now and I do have a document there that I was able to upload. What you can do, is create a document (letter, paper, etc.) on Zoho Writer and you can then publish it to your blog or even webpage. It's pretty cool. They even have a Spreadsheet thing you can use. There's also this sort of "Power Point" thing you can use to create slideshow presentations, all from the same website! I liked this exercise!


Week 7- #17

SJ Learning 2.0 Sandbox wiki

Ok, so I signed-up for the SJ Learning 2.0 Sandbox wiki. I added my blog. I looked around and will be adding my 2 cents on a couple other "Favorites" pages.
