Week 1 Reading Response

I found this website to be very informational. Some of the links were out-dated and did not work right and that was a little frustrating at times. The first link that I was actually able to go to was "How to copy data files to a diskette". This site was very informational and had very precise step by step instructions. I liked how they wrote in bold the important steps to take and then elaborated a little on those steps. I would find this useful if i ever needed to save information the old fashioned way on a disk instead of a CD. 

The next site that I visited was "Spreadsheet Resources from Educational Technology Training Resources" and I found this site to be very useful. I am not very proficient with Excel and this site had several tutorials on how to use the software. There was also lesson plans for teachers when using Excel which I thought was really neat. 

After this site I went to "Creating Web Pages using Netscape, by Babson College". This site will probably be extremely useful to me in the future. I will definitely need to create my own teachers website and this had step by step instructions on how to do that. I liked how they had each step clearly labeled and then they also had ways to customize a website. 

I was pleasantly surprised by the next site I visited. I clicked on the link labeled "ITMA Studio Tutorials" and found a whole bunch of tutorials, not just ones for digital cameras. This site will be very useful because it has so many different tutorials to view. There are ones on email, web design, file transferring, and image editing, which I am really interested in. This site was and will be very helpful. 

The last site I visited was "PowerPoint tutorials by ClassZone". This site was helpful because, again, it had many other tutorials to view, not just for PowerPoint. There were ones for the internet and Microsoft Office. I feel like I am pretty good at PowerPoint but there are definitely things that I can learn about it as well so this tutorial was good for me to view.
