Isn't it incredible that you wrote something about Slidshare and a support person came over and left you a note? The other day I posted something about on my blog and a "blog-watcher" came over and left me a note.

Yeah, we all looked at this comment on Suzanne's post. Personally, I was very impressed with that kind of customer service. ;-)

Suzanne said...

Yes, that was pretty cool of them. And it only took a few hours.. despite me posting at midnight.

Hi Suzanne,

You've overcome the technology challenges to post a project whose interface is clean, crisp, clear, and uses color to enhance the understanding of the content! The context in your word problems is a great read and your titles and the stated relationship to course content really add to your DEV.

In your reflection you mention you didn't feel it really increased your knowledge and later admitted you picked up some details and solidified your learning. I'm wondering if that isn't really important? Or not? And if some of the learning might have been in more clearly seeing and recognizing how you as a learner learn best? Or is that of value?

Best wishes,

Hi Lani :)

I guess what I was meant when I said the project didn't really increase my knowledge is that I didn't cover anything completely new to me... but now that I think about it, that wasn't the purpose of this project. I was just thinking about the awesome project that Mr. K pointed out to us, where the student completely surpassed the knowledge of a high school student. It was impressive, and I certainly didn't go that far with my project.

As for the details I picked up, those really were helpful! It was a good refresher for the exam. I think doing this project made me feel more confident on the exam day.. because I knew there were at least four types of problems I'd know how to solve if they came up.

Thanks for the comment :)
