~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Your Task 1

1. Create a blog, name it "My Journey begins... @ SST"

2. There should be two posts to this blog:

(a) In one of the post, insert an image that is representative of your feelings and reactions when you received the letter that confirms your posting to SST. Share why you choose this picture to represent your feelings and reactions.

  • Cite your image if you are not the owner of the photograph/image.
  • Do not post your photograph in the blog.

(b) In another post, describe your experience in creatng this blog. Also, suggest how blogging can be part of your learning experience in SST.

3. Email your blog address to sst.common.students2009@blogger.com . Sign off the email with your full name.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Something to ponder...

  1. How to change the order of the posts? (e.g. to move the latest post to the bottom of the page)
  2. How to allow visitors to comment on one post but not the other?
  3. How do we decide to let visitors to comment or not to comment at a particular post?
  4. How many account(s) is/are required if a blog is required for each subject?

  5. wait a minute, i dun understand... i use my hotmail to send to the above website??/ but there is no such blog.... so how???

  6. well... to get non-copyright pictures, I think the easiest and least hassle way is by taking the picture ourselves. Then these pictures are copyrighted to you, and others have to seek your permission to use them.

    Cheers!

    Others: any other suggested sites for ZC Cheng?

  8. Hi Miss Low, I had accidentally deleted the address bar. What should I do
    It is the bar to write your url.

    Cheers,

  10. Hi Abilash

    Once you have completed the video clip (using Photo Booth), "drag" the video to the computer desktop.

    To submit to the classblog, simply email the video clip as an attachment. Remember to reflect your name as the title in the email.

    This will be posted up in the Class Blog. Let's try... if you need further help, please look out for Ms Seah or myself.

  11. Hi Bevan

    Have you resolved the problem (i.e. displaying the address bar)?

    If not, please bring your macbook to the "Apple Service Centre @ SST" (Classroom Block Level 1, a room at the linkway) and look for Mr Shah for assistance.
