Well! A common question I get asked is how do I get so much done in my day! There are some that believe I never sleep! My secret is simple….. I multi-task! Probably at a higher level than most.
So I thought I would share yesterday morning with you (between 8-9 am) so you know how I multi-task… and why no-one should be this crazy.
Woke up early…hubby again being noisy and this is what happened:
- Realised from Darren Draper’s twitter that his class which he had invited educators to assist him with was not on Wednesday morning our time but was on Thursday morning. So at 7.00 am our time I logged into the session!
- Coming up to 8 am, while still in Darren’s session, I realised that the etools n tips session that I thought started at 9 am was starting at 8 am. Pondered whether I could run two Elluminate sessions (virtual classrooms) on my computer at the same time and decided if both sessions could run then it meant my computer could cope so I must be able to cope!
Had to, and wanted to stay with Darren’s session and wanted to attend Digital Story telling etools n tips session because I am presenting for these participants next week so needed to see the skills level of the participants.
So what was it like?
It was like sitting in two different lectures and you had to participate in both sessions with two separate voices coming into your ears. Text typing in both.
How did it go?
Well okay except for typing in the chat not to run video in application sharing (in etools session) and opps response to Sue was “SUE we are in Web tour!!!!!” And then caught out by MR Draper who asked me to talk…spin out you can not make sense when someone else is talking loudly in your head!
What else was I doing?
Googling answers, assisting with moderating one Elluminate session, twittering with friends, locating information on web sites and finding bookmarks in my del.icio.us account for both sessions.
What am I thinking?
Wonder if computer can cope with 3 Elluminate session?
