  1. This is something different from other courses I have taken, but feel this is a great idea. It’s a new system that’s fun to work with.

  2. As an editor for some of CSUCI’s webpages (Office of the President), I am excited to learn new skills and utilize the skills that I have gained from editing websites in the past. I love the feeling of excitement and joy once you finally figure something out. Happy posting everyone!

  3. Technology not my thing but I have to admit I have spent sometime trying to figure everything out. Procrastination at its finest!! This shall be fun.
