Now Waiting For Final Results

It’s the time of reversed anxiety. Anxiety from silent waiting, not anxiety from demanded action.

All my course work and exams seem to be completed or met. So, now I’m just waiting for my results. I anticipate a pass, but am so uncomfortable waiting for my overall marks.

The reason for such insecurity lies in the fact I really didn’t do half as well as I could have. I’m able to look back at my NCM and HIP work and see the things I left out because I didn’t know about them at the time. Continue reading “Now Waiting For Final Results”

Nearly Finishing Up…

While I feared all could be lost due to sabotage, I kept on working.

I wish I would have worked more though, but I worked as much as I could. Everything seems cleared up now, if showing some signs of what occurred.

As of now, if I get told of any issues with my work, I know that I could have done something truly great from what I managed to do under the circumstances.

I’ve learned so much over this course of study. After 8 years of immersion in IT technicalities, I finally feel ready to enter the corporate environment…

My Current State Of Desertion

Suffering sabotage, I am struggling to stay up to date with proceedings. Unable to access classes, I must rely on a VLE (virtual learning environment) that does not meet needs.

Therefore, I am doing work for each week but not every task from each week. This is not comforting and I am unsure of a remedy. This situation appears out of my control. As it was when it started.

Open to administrator design, the VLE page that I am tired of wasting time perusing is insufficient and further denying me access to resources and coursework information – albeit with updates.

To clarify: there is work to be done for a list of tasks but much of the supporting information is unavailable. The issues are resolved in class, with paper and tutorials, but I have no ability to be there.

I reach out to people for help but, right now, I’m in need of more. The apathy I am tempted with is reflected by everyone that interacts with me. Nevertheless, I continue to put time into this every day in hope of a pleasing end. What else should I do, other than work away..

ePortfolio Blogging + Mahara

Starting off with a new term and accompanying set of requirements, I am now using an ePortfolio platform provided by the university on their domain.

It appears as very ‘new’, ‘barebones’ and unwieldy as of now, so I hope that it will suffice for my and other students needs.

Happy to peruse unfocused LSBU communications, I just found out about Mahara, a platform for ePortfolios.

Although my groups were not told about Mahara, given recommendations for Weebly and WordPress, the somewhat obscure platform appears as uniquely superior.

Along with providing more learning-based interactions, Mahara can be integrated with the university submissions system (Moodle) to afford tutors and markers eased access to student ePortfolio assignments.

Though I am not intending to transition my ePortfolio to Mahara, due to no current requirement, I will certainly spend more time with it to experience its dynamics.

I may find that they are one and the same.
