I had a look at this. I am amazed at how much in the form of statistics and analysis you can do with the help of computers these days! What a great device to be able to see where and how often something has been published! The only shortcoming I found was it took a … Continue reading Thing 19: Altmetrics
A very big THANK YOU for putting the 23 Things course together! It has been very enjoyable to learn new things that I didn’t know before! Looking back at my objectives which were to discover and develop my technical as well as social skills, I feel that these have well and truly been met. I … Continue reading Thing 23: Reflection
Had a play with snapchat and Vine. Really fun tools but like the simplicity of using my phone to text people. If it’s not at my finger tips I’m not sure how often I would use these things, especially since I’m not Ridley Scott or Spike Lee.
I’ve been in to the National Museum of Scotland’s games and the Nobel Prize games. The NMS was interesting I played the what primate are you and it said I was a Granny Betty, an outgoing orangutan. This was an interesting game with the series of questions, but didn’t really grab me fully. It’s one … Continue reading Thing 21: Online Games and Learning
LinkedIn is definitely a platform that could help my professional career. Whereas Academia.edu/ResearchGate are not something I would consider unless I became an academic.

Above link to a Tumblr site I came across when searching for Finance and Accounting!
I’ve been using podcasts to listen to various people talk about all sorts of different topics. SoundCloud is new to me thanks to the 23 Things Programme! I like the podcast Planet Money. Being financially savvy, I like to take in anything relating to finances!! Podcasts/SoundCloud are a good way to get your voice heard … Continue reading Thing 14: Audio – Podcasts and SoundCloud
I like the UoE’s Media Hopper platform to produce video that can be shared with others. It’s great we have this resource. However, my preferred choice of media would have to be YouTube. Probably because it seems easier to use and publish things to a wider audience potentially. Most of the time you hear about … Continue reading Thing 13: Video – YouTube, Vimeo, and Media Hopper
I would love to create and share my own material as OER.

It would be exciting to be an author of something, even … Continue reading Bonus Thing 12
