Although Li513 – Technology Skills for Graduate Students was mostly based on teaching students to use the technology required to complete SLIM’s online program, I learned some valuable skills that I would not have otherwise known.
One project we were assigned utilized several technologies – students were asked to pick a new digital technology that could be helpful to libraries and present a report (PowerPoint, Prezi, etc.) by using Adobe Connect online. Since I was familiar with Twitter, but had never actually used it, I created an account for myself and did some research into how it could be used to a library’s advantage. The work I did for this assignment was indeed eye opening, and I learned a lot while creating a clear and easy to follow presentation for my classmates. My eye for design is also displayed in this artifact, visualization being a key element in all of my presentations.
