Thing 12: Open Educational Resources

Sadly, on our Oped.Ed website, there were no related content in the business field or my specific area. But I found something interesting – Videos for international students. I remember that it was especially helpful for preparation to Edinburgh since I was at the other side of the Earth before the arrival. I think OERs open up…

Thing 11: Copyright

    When preparing for a presentation, I often like to looking for visual aids to help convey my concept and engage the audience. For amazing, high-quality pictures, VisualHunt and Pixabay are the go-to. And recently I found making quick contents for leisure use on Adobe Spark, such as easy websites and social media content, are…

Thing 10: Wikimedia

No idea that there is such a large organisation behind Wikipedia, and that they have more projects going on – so amazing! In the Wikimedia group, I’ve only known Wikipedia. It has been a good friend to quickly search for certain terms or events and to gain a basic idea of it. ;p Although indeed…

Thing 8: Facebook

Facebook is HUGE back in where I’m from. No kidding. It’s literally everyone using Facebook. And I have been playing around its features since undergrad. From my experience, Facebook by far is the most convenient and useful tool for either personal use, professional development, or work. I created and joined groups for various coursework and…

Thing 7: Twitter

Just deleted my Twitter account several days ago. Because I rarely use it. Twitter Tips: How I used social media to find jobs  Students: Tweet your way to a job These two articles are really useful. I realise that Twitter is common in EU and US context, after reading them, I am considering setting up…

Thing 6: Accessibility

User-friendly design is not a new concept these years; so, creating user-friendly content is not new either nowadays. However, I do find some new things which I haven’t noticed. For example, videos should be subtitled or accompanied by a transcript for those with hearing impairments and feature descriptions for those with visual impairments. (See Thing…

Thing 5: Diversity

What in the world does emoji have anything to do with diversity? That was the first thought comes to mind when I read Thing 5. It was interesting reading these 2 articles (See The Washington Post and Huffpost) which present opposite opinions towards the same thing. I respect that both authors have their opinions. However, I cannot…

Thing 4: Digital Security

Overall the apps on my phone request access to reasonable functions like camera, microphone, photo gallery and such. Not many surprises out there. Because I already shut down every feature I do not wish them to have access to. Only one thing – the local recently downloaded bus tracking app reads my contact information, which…

Thing 3: Digital Footprint

Googled and searched myself on DuckDuckGo, here’s what I found – Yep that’s right. Nada. The only thing I found about myself are a few Facebook posts I’ve been tagged in my previous work. And that’s it. Myself do not show up on other search results as well (because I am bilingual so I tried my…

Kick off 23 Things!

I used to be managing social media content for undergrad projects. Most of the times I learned everything by doing, but oftentimes I was not sure about what should I post or how to manage the quality of the posts, even to set up a sound plan for a specific organisation to develop their unique social…
