I joined the Tenn Share community, for eight weeks of learning and playing on the Internet. Keeping up with new technology can be a challenge, but sharing what you learn with co-workers and others is such a great feeling.

#24 It's DONE!

1. What were your favorite discoveries or exercises on this learning journey?
My favorites would have to be the youtube and doing the blog site.
It has been very fun and I have learned a lot.

2. How has this program assisted or affected your lifelong learning goals?
It has given me knowledge on new technology that I have only heard about for a long time.
Now, I know about and can do it.

3. Are there any tools or programs you plan to continue using after this program?
Again my blog and youtube.

4. Were there any unexpected outcomes from this program that surprised you?
Yes, I completed it!!

5. What could we do differently to improve upon this program’s format or concept?
It would help if the instructions were a little bit more informative for people who have
no knowledge on a lot of the things. Also, if we could have say 1 thing for 2 weeks to do so
that we who have family and other obligations will not feel stressed out

6. And last but not least... If we offered another discovery program like this in the future,
would you again chose to participate?
Let, me think! Ok, if I am not back in class and stressed out then, YES!

#23 Podcast

I went into Learn Out Loud and looked up library stuff and came up with the biography for everyday people and thought this was a good site. I think Mel might find it helpful when the patron comes in and complains about us not having any biographies on non-famous people. Now we have something Mel (Ha! Ha!) Anyway it was cool looking at the and a couple of the other ones, I just didn't want to have to pay for anything so it was limited on what could be done a little bit.

#22 Downloading Audiobooks & Videos

Ok, I did this and found a book to download and then proceed to read it in one night. Yes, I really enjoyed this site. I looked up the following author Diana Palmer "Outsider"
I enjoyed her and a couple of other authors I read that we don't have some of the titles listed with reads. This is a great site, but I wished it was a little easier getting it download and signed up for.

I went in and download this dvd earlier when we first got this site for class.
"The Little Princess Starring Shirley Temple" and enjoyed watching. I do wish we had more dvd on the site, this one was real easy to download and do. I think patrons will find this easier then reads. But I liked reads better.

#21 Youtube

"Bring Him Home Santa "

Get the tissue for this one, you're going to need it.

I love youtube and was on it until 11:30 pm at night, so need I say more!

# 20 Discovering Other Web 2.0 Tools

I have heard Sandy & Sherry talk about this site so I thought I would go and play with it. I really liked this site and would find it good to play it when on the computer, as to a use in the library maybe in the back for staff to listen to music. Yes, everyone that has done this site is crazy about it.

#19 Social Networking - Myspace

I went to myspace and looked around it with the help of yes, my friend. I was surprised to learn that you could limit to who saw your info. Plus, I found it very interesting to view what was on the sites. However, as for me no I don't think I would be doing this as a social thing. Should the library have social network sites for patrons? I feel that it shouldn't be done here in the building, due to the fact you do have so many people on and can not control what is going on. But as I said that's just me.
