As part of my LIBR 246 Drupal class, I had to purchase a domain name and hosting from GoDaddy. After the class, I thought I would maintain the Drupal sites as part of my SJSU SLIS graduation portfolio. But after several security hotfixes and paying $6.99/month to maintain the site, I figured I could save my money and transfer the portfolio to this WordPress site. So tada, my new portfolio site: https://starnight71.wordpress.com/slis-eportfolio/. I am hoping I can maintain it as similarly as possible with the old site. There aren’t as many features in this hosted for free WordPress site as the a self maintained Drupal site but it isn’t a big site to maintain.
Wow, I haven’t written anything posts sign announcing that I was starting Spring 2014 and now my Spring 2014 classes are over. Just to summarize, LIBR285-Research Methods was my hard class and the last of my core classes. The professor was fine but the class really didn’t foster collaboration with my other classmates. There was a group project but the regular discussion posts were not engaging. I missed responding to a couple posts and missed one discussion topic completely. Oh discordia. I think I did pretty good for the class despite my lack of interest in the topic and course. I received A’s on all my assignments so far (minus the last I just turned in) but then there is the participation score that might hurt me. This might be my first B.
LIBR246-Drupal was a fun class and has produced a useful outcome. Even though I know a lot about Drupal going into the class, I learned some techniques and modules that will help me with work and SBVAA. The outcome for the class was to create a eProtfolio website: http://www.starnight71.info/eportfolio. I will continue working on this site for my graduation requirement.
Time for a little summer break. There’s too much going on in my life this summer and I need a break from school. Taking summer off then starting again Aug. 2014 for Fall 2014.
