More than a month has passed since I last made an update here. The challenge of doing “Project 365″ is slowly turning into a “Project 12″ instead. Perhaps, this is the result of the electricity situation we have in the UP College of Education and the UP School of Library and Information Studies. The main feeder short-circuited and got burned in the process which means my classes from both institutions were badly affected. I was handling 2 LIS (IT) courses in UP SLIS and 1 EDUC course (Computers in Education) in the UP College of Education.
Fortunately, the UP Diliman Interactive Learning Center (DILC) was able to accommodate my EDUC class last semester. My other classes from SLIS though had problems for we were supposed to have our laboratory exercises towards the end of the 1st semester and that really made a big impact in the output of their projects.
This 2nd semester, my EDUC class was again accommodated by the UP DILC. However, I’m still looking for Linux computer laboratories where I can hold my 2 LIS classes, and at the same time, I’m looking for a lab as well where my EDUC class can also use Linux for our skills development exercises. I hold my EDUC and LIS classes in the morning so if you have a spare Linux lab that you can lend to us with that schedule, you can help save our students and give them access to technology and Internet by leaving a comment on this blog post.
Thanks in advance!
