Laura likes to spend time online and post regularly on her blog. She enjoys sharing interesting information with others and follow her fellow students: she wishes that there would be a better way to reach her community more efficiently. She is interested to find more of informal information.
It’s eleven o’clock in the night. Laura makes a sandwich and opens her computer. She is attending three intensive workshops, taking few online courses and participating in several study projects. Before diving into another task she would like to see what her fellow students are up to.
She opens a new IMKE community page which aggregates RSS feeds from IMKE student’s blogs. Laura browsers though topics but does not study them closely unless they sound interesting. She stops to read a new essay posts with hash tag #FilmSemiotics. She quickly reads though the post and realizes that her project is missing a list of references at the end.
Suddenly Laura remembers that there might be a deadline for one of the weekly task on online course. She clicks on the link to the course environment and finds out that the deadline is within one hour. She shares her panic on Skype but someone points out that few task have already been done and she can look into ready solutions there.
Her attention is soon caught by an update on the page: Flick picture stream from resent Spring Semester party. Mostly people with towel faces. She copies the image source and shares it Facebook group page, posting also a comment with a request for another party.
