IT 566 is over

My IT 566 class is over. I got an A in case anyone is curious. I haven’t decided if I’m going to take any more classes or not. There don’t seem to be any online classes this summer or fall.

The two classes I’ve taken in the Instructional Technology program so far have been interesting but not especially challenging. At least IT 566 was an excuse to tinker and play.

The server I was running for the class is no more. I reformatted the drive and set it up as a computer for my daughter . It’s running Edubuntu and has some good kid’s software on it.

I took Windows XP off my desktop machine and it’s running Ubuntu now. I really don’t like the new Unity interface in 11.04. So I’m using the nornal Gnome interface, called Ubuntu Classic. Unity is Ubuntu’s New Coke, and we know how well that turned out.

As a side note, I’m not longer running a server 24/7 So the links to librarymonk.zapto.org in older IT 566 posts will no longer work.
