Four ways to communication with technology: • Blogs • SlideShare • Podcast • Vodcast Each method has its own strengths and weaknesses—let’s review each of them . . .

In this class, I tried tolearned how to use all ofthese programs.Most important, I learnedthat it is very, very difficultfor me. Even with a greatinstructor, I really struggledto learn the programs. Thenew technology ischallenging, and I struggleto understand it.
It is my personal goal to improve my novice skills so I feel some level of competency.At this point, I am just confused and frustrated.
I’ll conclude with this resolution: I need to spend hours and hours using these programs to learn them.They are great tools, and I will work with them until I can use them right.
