OneNote (Week 3)

Today in class we learned all about Microsoft OneNote. It was very interesting to learn that you can use it just as an electronic notebook. Placing words, documents, pictures, drawings, etc. anywhere on the page that you would like. By using OneNote, you can alleviate all of the other programs you use and keep all information in one place. The great thing about it is that it also will sync to other programs such as Outlook, Work, Excel, and more. I think that it will be very interesting learning more about OneNote and is definitely a program I will use in the future.

Corporate View (Week 2)

This week we learned many new ways to surf the Web and search for important information. We were introduced to the textbooks accompanying website that allows us to surf a simulated Intranet and research information from it. It was interesting to see the many different ways to surf the Web and retrieve information. Also, we took a group picture in class today that is posted on Mrs. Kuceyeski's blog. I feel that I now know some great tips for surfing the Web more efficiently and quickly.

Introduction to Class (Week 1)

Today was the first day of classes and we covered many topics. We read through the syllabus and explored all of the gadgets and technology that we will be using throughout the semester. We all became familiar with how the book works and that it may take time to learn the easy way to use it because of its formatting. Also, although we are all in the same class, we will be working on different pieces of technology and projects at different points in time due to the availability of the technology. I think that I will learn a lot this semester and be introduced to some technology that I've never used before and become better skilled at those I have.
