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.
