An alternative to the my labs plus bridge software… sort of

So however long ago it was I posted a blog about how accessable (or not) the math software that the college is using is/isn’t. I’m kind of excited to tell you guys that the My labs plus bridge has an alternative… sort of. Basically it started out with the math… Continue reading

Whoever told my math professor that the math software is accessable using Jaws is a liar.

Remember in the last blog when I said that I would tell you about the math softwar? Since no one had any objections to me doing so (if they did they didn’t say) I thought I would explain So as I stated in the previous blog the professor said that… Continue reading

First day of classes.

So I wrote in the last blog about how nervous I get on the first day of school. In this blog I thought I’d take you through my first day of classes (I’ll leave out all the boring details though.)
My day started at 5 a. m. I know it’s early, but it’s what time I had to get up in order to eat breakfast ETC. After I ate breakfast we headed off to college.
After I got to college we went in search of my first classroom. (we being my dad and I) When we went into what we thought was my first class’s room, and found a seat. After a few minutes I realized that no one was showing up, so I had my dad look at the schedule. It turns out it was the wrong room
After my tech for teachers class (my first class) the teacher came and talked to me. I told him my concerns with power point and how I had known how to use it in version 2003 but not in 2010. He said he’d work with me. Then, he gave me a USB Key (also known as a UsB Pen, or USB Key) containing all of the assignments for the class.
The next two classes I had were with the same professor who’d had me in a previous class. So there were no nerves there. She already knew what to expect, and I already knew she would work with me.
My math class (my last class) was the most interesting of all. Remember the wrong classroom we went into? It turns out that my math class met in that room. After class started I discovered that the math department is now using this computer software (I’ll write more about it in the next blog) which used flash player. Now, if you know anything about Jaws and flash player; you know that these two don’t always play nice with each other. When I brought this to the instructor’s attention, he said he’d work with me. He also suggested several alternatives if the program wouldn’t work. He even said that he would contact the company who makes the software and ask them how well the software works with Jaws.
Can I just say that I love it when a teacher/professor is willing to work with me? 🙂
