Is this the end?

I clearly remember that at the start of the module, all I was looking forward to was the flexible working hours and venue of work. As class only starts at 4pm, I could very well wake up at 2pm and start my day late. However, as the module progresses, I found myself being exposed and learning more about the digital world. It has successfully changed my perspectives on it and allows me to look at the digital world different now. Continue reading →

Looking Back at My Digital Learning Journey

“If you never try, you’ll never know what you are capable of.” (John Barrow, n.d.) I believe Barrow’s quote can be applied to my whole learning journey through MANG2049. I never thought I was capable of creating my own content, let alone posting it for the whole world to see. When I wrote my introductory post at the start of the module, I could merely speculate what the ending would be like 4 weeks later. Continue reading →

Final Reflections

This module has taught me a great deal on several topics. However, it is incomparable to the perspectives and skill-sets that I’ve been exposed to while going through this module. Some examples include research techniques and creation of online materials. Beyond proper research techniques and information literacy, I’ve learnt to consider alternate perspectives as well. An example would be how media organizations and their publications can sometimes be aligned with political agenda. Continue reading →

The Beginning of The End?

The web is like an enigma, constantly updating and baffling its users. Being a digital citizen, this module certainly stirred some introspection within. Amongst other, it has fostered some good digital habits. Fig 1 – Self-Test of Digital Activity (Self-Created using Canva) Generally, all factors have elevated by a notch. Continue reading →
