Assalamualaikum and Hi everyone,Today is our first class with Dr Fariza Khalid for GE1115-Computer in Education subject. I can feel that this course will be my favourite subject for this semester as previously I've taken Computer Writing and English in ICT during my diploma. So, I do have the glimpse of ideas on how this course will be like. It will be a student-oriented course and allow us to explore handful of new web 2.0 application and softwares on our own with guidance from Dr Fariza, of course. Though, Dr Fariza did mention to us that it will be a 3 hours class (straight), but I don't mind cause I know it will be a fun learning anyway.
In this class, Dr Fariza introduces us to the official website for this subject, ge1115ukm.weebly.com for our references. I love the website's interface as it is very smart and convenient for us as students to navigate. Everything that we need to know about this subject such as proforma, assignment, lecturers assigned for this subject, forum and roster of all students under Faculty of Education are just at our fingertips and accesible anywhere, with internet connection for sure.

Later, Dr Fariza instructs us to create new Gmail account using our real name, so I created one: firstname.lastname@example.org. This email will be used for academic purposes during our studies here until we graduate. So, I better memorize my password for this email as I have tonnes of emails and ended up forgetting the passwords. No one knows what happens to those emails up to these days.(Sigh).
Dr Fariza also mention that any students that are active in the forum with frequent responses will be given extra marks on top of overall marks from assignments and final examination. This actually makes me feel excited to participate actively in the forum.
