Thank You!

I would like to personally thank everyone who participated in the module 8 presentation.  The module worked well because of your efforts and participation.  The cocktail party was fun, even for the “designated” moderator!  It was nice to “see” that many people at the same time, even if in different places.  Thanks, all of you!

Module 8 Invitation to Participants in ETEC 522

You are invited to a cocktail party!  This is an entirely optional event for the curious.

Time: Sunday, November 2, 2008    8-8:30 pm PST

Place:  Elluminate virtual room

Dress:  Informal – come as you are!  Microphones are nice but not necessary; speakers would be very useful

Refreshments:  BYOD&F (Bring Your Own Drink & Food)

RSVP:  sonnann AT gmail DOT com to get a participant link (Note:  please respond well before the party so that there is time for me to send you the link and for you to try it out – Thanks, Gillian)

Warning:  This is an informal get-together with an inexperienced hostess (I don’t get out much!) that could be plagued by entry problems (overly aggressive bouncer) – very representative of synchronous communication!  Please attend with a sense of adventure in overcoming obstacles.

Module 8 team

It has been frustrating past few days as I have been unable to log  into Module 8 website successfully for any decent length of time. Although I have been able to make a couple posts… I have usually been unsuccesful in posting my piece after having typed the whole thing…including the collaborative story! I am sure this is a problem peculiar to me and I just have to wait for that moment when the network isn’t overloaded to post (I tried laste last night with no success though!) – though that shouldn’t be it – any other thoughts on what could be causing this?

Meanwhile…may I request module 8 team to post me the module reading links and discussion questions via email (deepikaunderscoresharma2atyahoodotcom) so I can keep everything ready and post when I get “that window” 🙂 Apologies for this extra work, but my frustrations are getting the better of me …I want to participate!

Cheers!
