Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.

Course Summary

I can't believe I have made it through this entire list of items - and before school started, as well! It has been a fascinating process, and I feel I have gained a great deal of knowledge, as well as increased the number of resources at my disposal. In addition to resources, is the improved ability to locate information within those resources, via RSS and tagging.

Ironically, I feel as though I am still at the beginning level of Web 2.0, whereas the staff at my school is still working on using technology much beyond word processors and spreadsheets. But I did this course for me, because it was interesting, fun, and allowed me a broader glimpse of the world than I would otherwise have in my home or library. And I know I will find myriad opportunities not only to share what I have learned (am already tapped for a presentation to other librarians), but to use the wide variety of collaborative tools which seem to increase daily.
