The Wiki project nears an end

November 6, 2005

The wiki project that I have been working on Sunday – November 13th. All in all, it has been a great project – one that I have enjoyed working on tremendously. Of course, I have only been able to get two (out of 19) of my classmates to participate. When I started the project, I was fairly certain that the most difficult part of the project would be attracting users – and this has turned out to be true. Ultimately, a wiki can only be successful if people use it to collaborate on something – otherwise it is simply a web page. A wiki really needs to come from a collaborative idea that several people want to work on together.


It’s Official!!

I finally received my letter of acceptance to Southern Connecticut State University’s MLS program on Friday afternoon. Yahooooo!!!! I didn’t realize how nervous I was about being accepted until I got the letter. I had read on the school’s web site that their admissions decisions were mailed out on (or around) November 1st. So of course, I was expecting the letter on Wednesday . . . then on Thursday . . . and by Friday I was a wreck. Fortunately, all worked out well. Now, I have to complete my intended program of study which is a bit overwhelming. Do I really want to go back to school???????? (The answer is still yes).

So, I am officially back in school. I’m definitely excited – and only a little bit nervous. Now that I have been accepted, I have to get back to work on my class. Our menu option exercise is due next weekend. The class will be over by November 23 – so I also have to get ready for the final exam. Yikes!!!
