FireFox Awesome! 5 Great ! 4 Nice! 3 Interesting! 2 Its Okay 1 Is the website useful? Is it user friendly? Appealing to both students and teacher 5 = Awesome! I actually had some practice using Mozilla Firefox. It is one of the web browsers I use. Currently, I am using Internet Explorer on my laptop, but when I do use Firefox I am able to identify the differences. Firefox is definitely faster the Internet Explorer, it is easy to use and navigate, and it has great security that protects my desktop computer safe from viruses and threats.

ED 451 as allowed me to explore this site and frankly I like it. I never knew that Google offered many things until I took this course. I thought Google was just for research, but I was completely wrong. I really like how I could create a document in my Gmail account, I am able to keep meetings and appointments using calendar.

Awesome! 5 Great! 4 Nice! 3 Interesting! 2 Its Okay 1 Is the website useful? Is it user friendly? Appealing to both students and teacher Blogger was definitely a step out of my comfort box. I am so used to Facebook and Myspace , but this sort of blogging was all new to me. I really like how I am able to share my work with people on the web if followed. This site is great to for students to read each others assignment and leave comments about the assignment. One thing I really like about Blogger is having the opportunity to choose a template. Since this site is “out of my box” I did have some difficulties. I had difficulties inserting tables and indenting paragraphs. With a little more practice, I am sure I could get the hang of this. 4 = Great! FireFox Moodle Delicious Google Apps Blogger Prezi MediaFire Yugma Click to navigate to site

This PowerPoint look alike is a fantastic tools for students to use when they have a presentation. Its innovative and mind boggling to use. It could be a bit tedious and time consuming, but not so difficult to use. I really liked this site because it portrayed a mind mapping outline for my ideas, I was able to upload pictures and I recently found out that videos could also be uploaded into this site. It is fun and easy to use. 5 = Awesome! FireFox Moodle Delicious Google Apps Blogger Prezi MediaFire Yugma Click to navigate to the site

MediaFire is a great site to store documents, presentations, videos, and images. This site is not only for storing, but also great for sharing. This site is easy for students to use, downloading files is quick depending on the file size, and students will be able to organize their files by creating folders.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Awesome! 5 Great! 4 Nice! 3 Interesting! 2 Its Okay 1 Is the website useful? Is it user friendly? Appealing to both students and teacher 5 = Awesome! Yugma is an online conferencing website. It serves like a regular chatroom and what I like about this tool is that the one is hosting the conference could display their desktop to the others in the chatroom . This site is great for students to communicate with others, as well as their teachers. This site could be used for group meetings and presentation purposes. The downfall of this site is that there is no source of media such as speakerphone or webcam and the textbox is pretty small FireFox Moodle Delicious Google Apps Blogger Prezi MediaFire Yugma Click to navigate to site
