I set my email preferences I added a photo or avatar to my profile and introduced myself to the community.
It looks like there aren't many people currently taking the N2OL course. Today will be the first day I meet with my on-campus liason.
So far, it all seems a little overwhelming, but I'm committed and actually enjoy this new experience. I've been an educator for over 30 years and always enjoy new challenges; I take pride in the fact that I've always tried to stay current, both with technology and student expectations.
I'm not really big on Facebook or Twitter, so "threads" and discussion forums will be my biggest challenge.
Hi Alexandra! Thanks for introducing me to the COTE community. I am not a big fan of social media---if there is a word to describe an online introvert, that would be me. But I love to learn about how older people flourish and overcome society's ageist attitudes. If anyone has a success story about themselves or a member of their family, I hope they will share it!
