Cloud Eportfolio Begins to Take Shape

Finally I have finished procrastinating about what template to use for my Google Site for my Cloud based eportfolio. After weeks of searching through templates and not finding anything I really liked I have settled for a blank template so that I can make it my own. And guess what – I actually like it so far.

Still such a lot of work to do. This will be a major work for me. I am not a good blogger and it takes me a lot of time and thought before I can actually publish something of this magnitude. So for the moment my site is private.
So how will my Cloud based e-portfolio work. I have studied quite a few examples and really like the models used by Coach Carole and Sarah Stewart. So I propose to have a main site which holds my biography and my artefacts and this blog where I will reflect and update on day to day activities. These will be closely linked. Then I will link these out to my Facebook, Twitter and Linked In Accounts
I am still deciding on what pages I will have on my Google site but have so far added a Biography and Academic page. But now I am wondering whether to actually have a Resume page with subpages for Academics, Employment etc.

Reflect and Connect – Another Course Completed.

YNH Services recently completed the second delivery of Reflect and Connect – a Reflective Practice course delivered entirely online in Moodle.  Nine participants completed the course from all over Australia and even one from UK.  We also had input from Juan in
Barcelona.

The feedback was fantastic.  Even though learners felt the workload was quite heavy for a six week course, all reported that they really enjoyed the experience and learnt everything they hoped for and more.   Junita Lyon assisted me in facilitating the course for this delivery with Coach Carole watching over our shoulders as our e-mentor.

To find out more about the course and what the participants thought visit the group blog.  http://eliberation2010.wordpress.com/

Whilst there find the links to the participants blogs that were created during the course.  Some of the students are continuing to build on their blogs and maintaining their online presence in spaces such as Twitter and Facebook.

Setting the Scene

This image symbolises where I am in my Learning Journey.  Along way past the beginning but certainly nowhere near the end.  So much stuff in my mind, so many tools, bright ideas and knowledge.  Now it is time to reflect, consolidate, make sense of everything.

This beautiful photo of the Gordon Riverwas taken during a recent holiday in Tasmania.  It symbolises where I would like this journey to take me.  To calm periods of Reflection.  To get to the place where I can prioritise time to truly reflect on and consolidate some of the many ideas and thoughts that spin around my brain!
