11:49  Rebecca: A lack depth

11:53  RobDarrow: Certain online tools lend themselves to deeper academic discussions

11:53  RobDarrow: I like what Rebecca said...the deeper you to in a topic, the smaller your network becomes...is that what you said Rebecca?

11:53  Rebecca: Pretty much

11:54  Rebecca: The article on open education talked aboutdifferent types of people ... some are shareers.

11:57  Rebecca: I wish I had the creativity to do game based stuff ... I just don't seem to have the mind forit.
