A Mixed Bag of Traineessylrog

You know what they say about assuming things. I’ve learned that it is never a good idea to assume that just because someone wants to learn some particular kind of software does not mean that they in fact are proficient with basic computer skills. It is difficult to train a group of people with a […]

I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work. –Thomas Edison There are a lot of great quotes about failing. The University of South Alabama’s still new football team lost to Kent State this weekend. This is their second loss ever. The final score was 33-25. The score does not really tell […]

Today I conducted a short training on setting up WebDAV for Sakai today. This is part of a great number of courses that we are conducting for the migration from our current LMS (Learning Management System) to the Sakai CLE.  We did not have a large turn out unfortunately, but I think the people that […]

What is Palm Oil Doing in My Peanut Brittle?sylrog

Wed, 21 Sep 2011 23:31:20 +0000

I stopped by for my weekly examination of food at The Fresh Market here in Mobile.  My goal is to be able to get out there without buying something, but alas, that does not happen very often.  The bakery/sweets department had some delicious looking nut brittles displayed.  They had peanut, almond and granola brittle.  The […]

MOOCs are like Chinese Buffetssylrog

Wed, 21 Sep 2011 21:10:54 +0000

  #change11 I liken MOOCs to the Chinese buffet that our family enjoys.  There are dozens of various dishes, and many that I want to eat a lot of.  So I developed a strategy.  First I just get vegetables that are not fried or coated in sauces.  Hot and sour soup is a must.  Next […]

Review of Ben & Jerry’s Shweddy Balls Ice Creamsylrog

Sun, 18 Sep 2011 18:56:20 +0000

I enjoyed my roasted beet and pickled okra salad for lunch, but I must admit the entire time I was thinking about getting my mouth around some Shweddy Balls ice cream. Here I offer my humble review. The ice cream does not lack balls for sure.  I got balls in every spoonful.  However, my first […]

#change11 I’ve been thinking very hard how I want to benefit from this course.  Of course I want to increase my understanding of educational technology and see how others are using it.  More than anything, I want to try out these new ideas.  I’ll share my trials and tribulations with you on this blog, twitter, […]

I Barely Escaped!sylrog

Chocolate espresso breakfast buns with caramel icing, almond flower croissants, very berry deep dish pie….I’m lucky I got out of the Fresh Market this morning without weighing an additional 20 lbs.  I escaped with some delicious looking plums, beets and almond butter.  I’m going to just eat the plum out of hand, but I’m roasting […]

Why Did I Wait So Long to Blog?sylrog

Fri, 16 Sep 2011 02:24:23 +0000

The main reason I finally started a blog is that I have enrolled in my first ever MOOC.   What is that? Well a MOOC could be a lot of things.  I used an acronym generator and it came up with “Morbid Oddity, Oblivious to Crapulence,” and a different one displayed “Maroon Oath Orgasm Counter.”  Those […]
