Copyright and Creative Commons (23 Things – Thing 11)

Thing 11 is about understanding copyright and creative commons. As a recreational artist (and blogger, can I call myself that?), I have a bit of an idea about copyright and creative commons.

Wikimedia and Open Knowledge Sharing (23 Things – Thing 10)

Using Facebook Groups to Build Community (23 Things-Thing 8)

Thing 8 for 23 Things is about Facebook. Facebook is something that I have used for over a decade. It is one online platform that I use strictly for personal use, unlike Twitter and Instagram where I share publicly my research and work. Due to this, I’ve made my privacy Read more…

How accessible is my website? (23 Things – Thing 6)

Thing 6 of the 23 Things course covers accessibility. While I thought I had a fairly good grip on ways in which to make my website and presentations accessible, I was overlooking quite a few things. I ran the Website Accessibility eValuation Tool (WAVE) on my website. The results were eye opening. Read more…

Who am I online? (23 Things – Thing 3 : Digital Footprint)

For the third module of 23 things (Thing 1 & 2) the tasks were to review some materials and google yourself. I have been attempting to cultivate my online presence (somewhat half heartedly) over the last 5 years. This module really got me thinking about as to why I am Read more…
