TASK TWO:  Posting First Week's Web Discussion Message

Went and looked at task schedule to ensure proper instructions. read them twice to make sure I knew what I was supposed to do.

I went directly to webct.com and found nothing useful.  It was the wrong page. AUGH

This was ERROR 2; I obviously didn't have the correct page

Look at our class homepage to get the info that I needed,  I couldn't find it, but instead got it from my classmate

Went to the UH WEBCT ( http://webct.hawaii.edu )  page and registered myself then added my class to the list

I looked at the instructions about posting, and chose a topic and subtopic.

Opened up Google.com on my browser and typed in "information literacy"

Found it was a defined topic and worth making a response about it.

Posted responses.



    After I found the information, I had to take parts out of the web sites in order to formulate my own answer.  Trying to reword what I had read was a little difficult at first.  I had to take notes on a separate page from Word, and then piece them together into a coherent paragraph.  It took about 15 minutes to finally post up.



    This task didn't really bother me at all.  I went about my business of getting the information that I needed once I had made the mistake of not having the correct web site.  The only thing about making mistakes is that it takes precious time away from my schedule.  I don't like redoing the work that I've just done, and that's all a mistake is.  Am I frustrated?  I constantly ask myself that all the time.  There's nothing to be frustrated about here.  Well, I take that back, yes I am a little irritated with myself for not having the correct internet address for the webct, but on the other hand, I don't think it's a really big issue.  I can call my classmates for the correct address.  How much time did this take away from me? I think total was about 35 minutes.  That's how long I searched for the website on my homepage, and also by looking at the different papers I have and the task list.  I don't see this as a failure but more so a disappointment.  I thought I for sure would have this assignment completed without trouble.
