It's been a week, I bet

Life's been rushing by and filled with full schedule of tasks at work. A group project for IDT 510 that's due tomorrow night by midnight, post to this blog, post to a discussion question in IDT 510, post to the 516 Wiki page, worked on my Web Portal for 516, dr.'s appointments, and a minor family emergency that's just eaten and eating up my time this week. Probably nothing any different in everyone else's lives. If Sunday's nice, I've got to replace a roof on the addition to my garage.

I have managed to locate several articles on the internet about rubrics, copied them into a Word doc so I've got 'em listed in one spot and saved it to my hard drive.

I've got a question about the Web Portal, if Dr. West is checkin' this blog or anyone else that knows the answer...I'm not sure how you send a link to the Web Portal page that we set up on seems like there's no specific identifier for my portal page...I've been able to send a link to a tab...but I'm not sure that's what Dr. West is wanting.

Onward and upward!!!!

October 18, 2007 - IDT 516 Final Project Journal

These three choices for the final project are a bit of a bear. I've really not had any clear idea which one to choose! Not only that. Now I've got to get a Blog together and journal at least once a week about the process of the Final Project!

Okay....lesseee...I got to choose one of these three options:
  • Option 1: Design and Develop a Web 2.0 Lesson Plan
  • Option 2: Create and Test an Elearning Evaluation Rubric
  • Option 3: Conduct an Online Database Search
I've been thinking about what it is I'm gonna do for the final project for the last 3 days! Which one would be best for me to do? I'm just not sure any of 'em fit. I'm thinkin' I could come up with a rubric and it would benefit me how? I could design and develop a web 2.0 lesson plan...hmmm. Now there's a possibility that might be beneficial down the road. Dr. West did say it might be that an option could be applied or used in another course. If I could come up with a good lesson web 2.0 lesson plan for learning CSS that might be something I can use in another upcoming class...hmmm. Of course I could conduct an online database search to support the web 2.0 lesson plan...hmmm. And a rubric could be...nah...this is getting too carried away! It'd be fun if I could get all three options done but the time factor doesn't allow for it. Gotta make a decision on this and I've been tossin' it around in my head for the last 3 or 4 days now. As much as I wanna be able to work with CSS more, maybe makin' a lesson plan for it wouldn't be such a bad idea but it's more personal of a goal and I'm not a teacher...hmmmm.
