First blog post ever!

Hi everyone,

Thanks for checking out my blog.  You’ll have to forgive me if this starts a bit awkwardly but I think the title pretty much sums it up.  I’m the reticent blogger!  I suppose some of it is listening to my own advice to my daughter about being careful what you post or reveal online while some of it is not understanding why anyone would want to read my thoughts on random topics.  That being said, I’m looking forward to returning to school this semester with ETEC 647E and studying emerging technologies.  In particular, I’m looking forward to the section on MOOCs since I just don’t understand them!  How do they work?  Why do they people do them?  More importantly, what do I tell my boss if he asks me to create one?  Hopefully I figure it all out before that happens.

As I wrap up my first blog post,  I ask you to please bear with me as my thoughts meander from topic to topic and feel free to chime in with your own thoughts.
