Well, Day One is over, and although I was exhausted, I feel I should be able to keep up, even if it is at my own pace, and not at the pace of many who are nearly 50 years my junior!
Reading through the threads on the 'Welcome' page there are folk from all around the world on this course!
After signing the 'Code of Conduct' and the University rules and security, I am not able to post course material, but telling you, in my own words, what I am doing, should be OK.DAY 1
I spent over 8 hours today just loading the processing programme and getting to grips with what it does... even following the course notes I got lost several times, eventually deleting the programme and starting again I had also to go on to Uncle Google to find out how to "un-zip" a file, as it is something I have never done before.... but now know how to do it!
To make matters worse there are many on the course who are young coding whiz-kids, or experts in the coding field, who insist on posting, in the open discussion threads, that they have done it... found it easy, and are ready for the next section!
Our task for week one is to write our name using our mouse, then edit it and insert colour..... did you know that "mice" can't draw... well mine can't, anyway!
At the end of day one I was mentally exhausted, but, I'll come back at it fresh tomorrow - that is if I can find whereabouts on the hard drive I have "saved" everything!! DAY 2
After doing some household tasks, and grocery shopping, I made a coffee and sat down at the computer ready to recap on what I did yesterday....and the site is down! It says they are "upgrading", and tell me to.....
"Grab a quick cup of tea while we do a bit of maintenance work. We’ll be back in a few minutes"
Erm, I don't drink tea, and have already got a coffee! lolDAY 3
I have completed week one, I can now relax, deal with other pressing matters, or just "play" with what I have learnt.
At the end of the 15 sections there was a self assessment test, luckily with the chance to "have another go".
I got 80% correct on my own, and needed a "clue" for the last one, as I think I miss read it.
Check out comment #16 to see if you can work it out! lol
