Monday October 2, 2006: Reflection 1


This is my first experience with Wikispaces and I am finding it very complicated to use. I even notice my name disappearing from the list and having to make it all over again. I really hope that my relections get to the professor on time because I am not sure how this web page works. My feelings towards this site is that I am a little nervous and intemidated. I am not sure if what I am doing is right or not. I believe that because I enrolled in CCT300 late I feel a little overwhelm.

Overall, I do want to learn more about this site and strong believe that I will understand it much better as the term progresses. I do like how the navigation is set up because it seems more welcoming. Especially with the idea of posting additional information onto other students pages. I think that it's great because it allows the interaction of people to become more friendly. In the long run this site would benefit me because I would have much more of a variety for certain websites and more knowledge on how to approach a new site. I think once I play around with the site and add more of my input I will have a better understanding.

Thursday November 2, 2006: Reflection 2 (Due November 16)

Question:
2. Think about the following and answer to the best of your ability:
  • How do you choose which postings to contribute or change? What do you look for?
>
* What are your thoughts on adding, editing or re-arranging other people's work?
>
  • Do you regularly check your own postings for alterations? Has anyone changed your work and how have you felt about it?

Reflection:

As I enter wikispaces, the postings that I contribute or change are the ones that catches my interests. Such as what do I enjoy? The things that I enjoy are comedies, romance, cartoons, cultural (Bollywood), etc. I look at things that need to be adjusted in order to make it understandable by the reader. If I know that a reader would not understand the content on a page I would add an image to give them a brief idea. many people learn visually so being as descriptive allows the content to be more understandable. I like to look for things that are creative because I know that as my interesting I like to add a creative aspect to things, even though there are a lot more people that are more creative then me with what I see on these pages.

My thoughts on adding, editing or re-arranging other people's work are both positive and negative. They are postive because I get the impression that we are all working as a group on a major project and everyone has their own ideas to make things much more creative an easier. This is a good thing because everyone can come up with different ideas where one might not have thought of before. The negative aspect of this is that for an individual who has a page might feel as if their work and creativity is being overruled by someone else. The amount of work that they put in can be diminished by someone else. I get worried that the professors will not realize what I have started and which page I did for my wiki assignment. Either than that I believe that it is a good thing with adding things on peoples pages because it brings together not only people but ideas as well.

I do regularly check my postings for alterations as well as come up with different ideas to add on to my page or to other pages that I have previously added on to. The way that I feel about it is that I do not mind people adding or editing my page because it feels as if they are helping me out with an idea or a project. So far I have found it fun and interesting and look forward to adding more things to other pages that I find interesting.
