There where a few reactions on my last blog-post. I liked that very much and it seems a sign that feeling a bit lonely was not only my problem. Because of the subject, loneliness at a life session, it seems a bit odd that I was not in the Elluminate Session on Wednesday and not in the Ustream Session on Friday this week. But really…, both happened only by to much other things to do. Wednesday my brother and sister in law asked me to have dinner with them in a Japanese restaurant and I said YES. And Friday an old friend was in my house visiting us and I had to cook and had really no time for the session. My not being there also had nothing to do with the mail, the moodle-message, from Stephen! I liked that very much and read all, I said ALL, the responses in my mailbox and often laughed in myself.
Just a few moments ago I listened and looked to the session of Friday. Namely in the chat-room was a discussion about people having left the course because of the message of Stephen. If so, I think they were not very attracted to this course before also. If they only left because of the Stephen-message this is something I cannot understand very well. But for me, no problem, do as you like, choice your own way.
I am still here! But I do have a problem. I want to write a proper second paper, but I think it will cost me a lot of time and I will find it very difficult. Of course I have my Personal Control. I can do it, I can not do it. I read almost every letter that was recommended by the course-organisers. I thought a lot about what my knowledge was and is now about learning-theories. But to write a good paper, not again one for a C- ( :-)), will not be easy. I still can not say in my own words in my second language what Connectivism is and means to me. Or, may be I could if I took a lot of time and energy to do so. Well, I am still here! I will read and listen further. I still do like it very much to be a participant in this course. I’m a happy student! And, who knows, I will try to give words to my learning in a second paper in the following week. The C- is not the real problem, that’s OK when I deserve it, but to do what is asked in the scheme, that’s the problem on this moment. Well, we’ll see.
