Hello everyone my name is Katie. So I’m taking the Creativity and Multicultural Communications course at the advanced level to get credit while I attend Empire State online. I’m going through all the readings right now for the first week of class and figured I’d get a jump start and also introduce myself. As I’m reading through the “essays” I’m wondering exactly what are we to use our blogs or other networking sites for? I didn’t see any assignments yet and I’m half way through the readings so I was curious what exactly are we trying to accomplish in our sandboxes? I’m not sure how one replies to a post I create either, the news feed that we are supposed to check out seems confusing and dead to me so I don’t think I’m doing it right. So that’s all I have to say for now, I’m going to dive back into the readings because I have plenty of other work in my other courses since I’m a senior finally and want to stay ahead of the ball game.
