And the award goes to…

The other day I mentioned php. Someone asked me what it stood for. I honestly didn't know. 'I just code or I just hack it' wasn't my best response! php (or PHP) stands for hypertext preprocessor. Correct. It's like a fool's errand. PHP actually is an acronym for "PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor." What? Wait, what tomfoolery is this - that's recursive, people! Yes. Perhaps my "I just use it" stance is justified.

Updating my resume

Nothing to see here. That sure is a shame. 10/28 update: I don't know when I stopped having my resume on my website. I know it's in LinkedIn... but it is time to have it back here. For my coworkers, managers, and team: I don't want to leave UAF eLearning. I do want to do more. It's time to update my resume, and that means sprucing up my website, adding new posts, doing a general culling of fluff. Notes on what to include Program management People management…

There is so much fall clean up going on… but I need to think about Spring 2017 and CITS F222: Website Design

Hello Everyone! In October I will review and update the Syllabus for Spring 2017. In late October I will prep the schedule–calendar–for Spring 2017. In November you’ll see changes to module pages updating them for the Spring week-by-week layout. In December the site will get a bit of a face-lift to refresh specific sections. This is also when I’ll review all of the reading materials (links) that are not from our text and update as needed.

Getting serious about Twitter?

Egads! I'm a professional. I've been online since (okay, I won't say)... but in the five years I've had a Twitter account--the one I use, not the one I want--I've not tweeted *enough.* Enter IF THIS THEN THAT to the rescue. I most certainly have communicated a LOT and shared cool tools and how-tos via different web interfaces. Let's consolidate. "Let's get connected..." Now, the interesting thing to me was WHEN I decided to start pushing my WP posts to my Twitter feed, I was presented with a…

OTHER AWESOMENESS Unsplash.com {https://unsplash.com/} for excellent images! That's taken in Glencoe, U.K. by Rab Ritchie.
