Hi Friends,
I have to share this weird experience with you all.. whole of last week I was trying to write my ROL draft as and when I had queries I wrote to unihelp, I kept wondering why are they not responding as it was more than a week since I raised my query.
As I was browsing today on myUnihub page accidentally  saw my profile(Personal details) in which  my contact email was reflecting a different one but later I learnt it was created by the university which I was not aware of.  I was shocked and immediately wrote another email requesting to resolve my confusion. They sent me a link through which I learnt that I have a different university email account and password, when I logged in I noticed the responses were sent to this mailbox, apparently there were very important notifications regarding online seminar about Review of learning which was on 19th October and 24th October which I missed, felt very miserable.  The next online seminar is on 8th November, did anyone attend those two seminars?
I am very disturbed today by this don't know how this happened? why I didn't I receive any communication about the new university email. I
Its a humble request to my advisers to guide us about these as we are new to this distant learning program.
Thanks.

Hello friends!!
Hi Samantha..I truly understand what you are experiencing at this moment. while we discuss with our adviser we think it sounds simple all we need to write about our experience but when you begin to write thought process  and flow of words becomes slow...we end up thinking for long time rather than writing. Of course time just flies in the  process ....I am also sailing in the same boat. 
After many attempts today I am able to read online from my library e-textbook, if you download the book it gives just a single day to read,however if you read online you can copy or print few pages. Each book runs for 250-400 pages....I have been reading Reflection: Turning experiences into learning-by Boud, D.,R.and Walker,D. In 4 hours I could read only 10 pages may be because I am also taking down some points.
I have not found any suitable literature to my AOL titles, some are on google scholar  but then we need to pay for the subscription which looks a bit expensive...I am confused should I go with it or not.
Hey Guys I was wondering if you all paid Module 1 fee?
Cheer up guys!!!! Willingness to experiment makes Uncertainty a Positive one!!! Lets work hard !!
Thanks Samantha for sharing your opinion.  Enjoy studying!!

Hello Module one friends!!
Hope you all are working seriously towards the task...
I am trying to work on AOLs  for the last few days..trust me this process requires lot of time and I am trying to squeeze at least 3 hours a day out of my busy schedule.  Can anyone tell me as to how to get notification when someone writes /comment on MAPP blog?

As I am focusing on the Areas of Learning, I feel I am deviating my views towards reflection of learning..cant really understand the difference between the two.  Did anyone managed to read books which are listed for our reference?  I read few chapters from "Reflective practice" its very helpful. do share your views. Thanks

Hi Module ones!!
 Yesterday's discussion with Adesola has given me great ideas as to what could  be my Areas of Learning (AOL).  Focusing on past expereinces this is what I come up with!!
Tittles for my AOL are
 1. "Start from the scratch"...Starting my dance classes in a new Geographic area,exploring various unknown facts..learning from my mistakes, consciously looking for opportunities to show my skills, being humble to ask help and suggestions from those who are already establsihed in the field of dance, performing for charity events to gain some contacts.
2.  Finding ways to teach Indian dance to different cultured background ..encouraging to learn this temple art as Indian dances are mostly based on story telling..Bharatnatyam being an a Visual poetry.
3.Diversity and communication Strategy...How best can I communicate to my students, as sometimes we don't get exact translation to our mother tongue language.
4. Implementing my commerce knowledge to startup my dance class..working out of the logistics space availablity.
5.Organising /performing events..managing the stage lighting and costumes make-up and other aesthetics required for the show.
