Question 8:

What are YOU MOST PLEASED about in terms of THE WORK YOU DID during the “Alice Project” now that the PROJECT HAS ENDED?

Here were their (unedited) responses:

***

1. I am most pleased with my effort in the project. Though my organization of time was not perfect I believe I made up for it with my work effort. 

***

2. the amount and quality of the work done is extreme, so much that it is impossible to read all the created blogs. This gives us a decent simulation of a real world setting, but once more, we are not our own average audience.

***

3. I am pleased that we as a grade were able to successfuly compleat a very extensive and very large project with such success.

***

4. The blog ideas I was able to come up with.

30. I absolutely loved the feeling I got when someone really read one of my more interesting ideas and commented on it.

***

31. I was pleased about my quality of writing. Honestly, I’m not very good at writing essays, so I never thought that I would be good at writing blog entries. But, I realized that my entries were really good in my book.
