Thing 10: Wikimedia

  Thanks to 23Things, now I know that Wikimedia has many projects. Among all projects, I was interested in Wikimedia Commons.  I think this resource will be handy if I want to find free images or any media files for blogging, making slides for presentations, etc. I tried to search “nurses” and look what I found,… Continue Reading →

Thing 9: Collaborate Ultra

I’ve been both a participant and a moderator in Collaborate Ultra sessions. My experience being a participant is when I attended the online IAD workshop about ‘Engaging students in an online environment’ delivered via Collaborate  Ultra. My first thought was that Collaborate Ultra was similar to Youtube that we could watch live video and had… Continue Reading →

Thing 8: Facebook

I decided to stop using Facebook months before its scandal involving user data. So I won’t discuss the scandal here, but I rather explain why I don’t use facebook anymore. The main reason is that I spent too much time Facebooking! Before quitting, I was convincing myself that Facebook was necessary to keep in touch… Continue Reading →

23 Things – Thing 12 – Open Educational Resources

Thing 12 – Open Educational Resources (OERs), appears to be a topic I need to build my knowledge on.

Thing 7: Twitter

I have been a Twitter user for a long time but I never use any management tools for my account. I took the opportunity of Thing 7 to explore Analytics and TweetDeck. It’s very impressive to see that almost a thousand of people have read my last tweet but the engagement rate was only 1%! I’m also… Continue Reading →

Thing 6: Accessibility

After reading the stories of web users and the article by Sabrina Fonesca for Thing 6, I came to realise that I used to take for granted the visual appearance of a website. I thought it would be fine as long as the colours used were not green or red. But accessibility encompasses more dimensions other… Continue Reading →

Thing 5: Diversity

Thing 5 reminds me of The Emoji Movie where there’s a princess emoji wanting to be herself and used a baseball cap instead of a crown. I never really thought that emojis could be related to diversity issue. This perhaps related to my preference to use the yellow round faces and things instead of gender-specific faces, etc….

Thing 4: Digital Security

Digital security and privacy of my mobile phone have been brought to my attention even before learning Thing 4. My reason is that I feel weird if any application can access my location even though I’m not using it. So in my mobile phone setting, I always select ‘while using’ option. After I downloaded the app MyPermissions Privacy Cleaner… Continue Reading →
