The Scholars Room: tips & tools for your scholarly journey and beyond.

Today’s episode:

* Meet the host
* The purpose of the podcast

* Other features of the show

Purpose:

Provide tech tips, writing tips & motivation to stick with it. This podcast is for anyone thinking about, begging, or ending (or somewhere in between) your scholarly journey – no matter what university you attend whether online or traditional school.

This is my rudder I plan to use for this podcast. Jackson stated that “I ask myself, should this be in the podcast? Well does it (why reason). It helps me identify who I think is listening” (2012). I also want to thank Dave for all his help and if you want to start your own podcast go out to the http://schoolofpodcasting.com.

*** note the APA format you will see more as time goes on ***

Review:

Dropbox: My favorite tool for keeping my files current, handy on all the computers I work with, and it’s free. What I love about Dropbox is that I always have my stuff when I need it. Basically, it’s your personal jump drive without carrying it in your pocket. I got tired of always losing or breaking one or not having it with me when I wanted to plunk myself down and get to work.
