|Rating at start of module||Comments|
|Accessing, managing and evaluating online information||4||Accessing and researching online information was always a norm for assignments but evaluating them was quite challenging. There was a need to sieve out only the most relevant and reliable information.|
|Participating in online communities||1||I have minimal experience participating in online communities. Only happened once, but it’s still very new to me and I am not used to it.|
|Building online networks around an area of interest||1||I have never set up any online networks with others. Not very clear about how to do that either.|
|Collaborating with others||4||Collaborating with others over the internet was almost a daily affair for every assignment given. It was very effective. However, it was quite difficult to provide detailed explanations over the internet.|
|Creating online materials (text, audio, images, video)||2||Previous assignments required the need to create videos, audio and text. But it was only once or twice, so I am still learning how to do it.|
|Managing your online identity||3||I barely have any pictures of myself on social networking sites because I am quite inactive.|
|Managing your online privacy and security||3||Disclosure of personal information is minimal because I know how it can be easily manipulated. Only general information about me can be found. Most of my accounts are private and only open to a limited circle of family and friends.|
According to the self test , I realized that I am quite experienced regarding digital literacy although still not quite there yet. This is reflected by the total score of 18/35 which is equivalent to just a pass.
However, I have pretty good experience when it comes to collaborating with others over the internet as well as accessing/managing information. Google docs was a digital tool that I used most of the time during my previous school days for group assignments and I am really skilled with it. Moreover, researching for information and applying them in my projects was like a daily routine. However, I don’t have that much experience regarding online identity and privacy since I rarely access the social networking sites that I have. Rather, I used them for submitting school work or liaising with fellow students and teachers.
I hope to see more improvements in my score as the module progresses 🙂
