  11. 14. My husband now calls me a computer nerd! I even moved from this web site and set up my medicare on line to find out where my children’s immunisation records are. If I can use this Wiki to save my work and do assignments I feel I will finally know more about computers than my children. ” Sylvia “ I think that they are very useful and it is growing on me. I used to hate it with a vengeance, but now I think I was just being lazy. It is cutting edge technology.” Monica I found today's class most informative. I particularly enjoyed the interactive learning session. Love the blended learning. It makes learning interesting and creative.” Anastasia
  12. 15. 18 July “ I feel a bit overwhelmed and very much lost. I am out of my comfort zone.” 25 July “Blended learning is a quick way of learning computer skills plus the unit at the same time.” 1 Aug “Today I can honestly say I enjoyed myself .The wiki space is a fantastic idea I have been using the information and even printing out for reference. I don't think I really realized how much I had learnt until I looked back on my skills when I first started. I feel proud of myself and thanks Sally for teaching them to me.” Marina
