I feel that Effective Internet Research is like the cloud. Sometimes the practical may seem fun but somtimes may seem so boring. This module, Effective Internet Research make up of so many cloud shape. It seems that different type of search engines make up of question mark shape cloud, boonlean operators make up of plus shape cloud, WIKI EIR make up of smiling face shape cloud and so much more. All of the shape when come together it become the true form of Effective Internet research. I am happy that I am in this cloud shape because I learn quite a few things that is so new to me. Finally the combination of the shape will be HEART CLOUD!

Real Life Maldives

website as coverage. The coverage of the website is that it show what to do at Maldives, their activities and how to get to Maldives. I feel that it is to comprehensive because it give a overview of Maldives rather show as picture or video of Maldives. I feel that it will be much more better if it show us lots of photos and video of Maldives because it is really a very beautiful and relaxing place to go. It will surely attracts lot of people with videos and picture as picture speak a thousand word.
The reason why I choose Maldives because it is a beautiful and relaxing place in the world. It give me a impression that it is romantic, relaxing, stress free and where family and loves one should go to Maldives one day. I am a person that love to stay near sea side where is windy and relaxing that will be the best place for me to go. Furthermore, there are so many sea creatures where you can see it so clearly and enjoy sunrise and sunset everyday.
In Second Life Maldives, it enable me to explore the environment of virtual Maldives. It also help me to see how the surrounding of Maldives is like. However, while exploring it doesn't give me a good impression of Maldives but just a normal beach resort. I feel that in virtual life, it does not give us the physically feeling of Maldives, the sea creature, the environment, the sunrise and sunset, the sounds of wave and the relaxing feeling.
Practical 6 (Invisible Web)

Do you think it is more effective to search the invisible web (databases) than using search engines, meta-search or subject directories? Why?
I feel that using search engines like Yahoo or Google is much more effective than invisible web. Firstly, search engines like Yahoo or Google are very popular and use among everyone. Secondly, it give more information and much more efficient then invisible web. Even though invisible web are much more accurate and reliable information but if the research topic are not popular it will have less result or no result at all. After all, search engines are still much more efficient and effective.
Name ONE database which you will use for your research topic. Why?
I will use EBSCOhost database because it give me results like Causes and effects of Selective Mutism, Symptoms of Selective Mustism, Treatment for Selective Mutism and others more. It gives lot of information that help me in my research finding and it definitely lead me to the right track in my research finding.
Name ONE more database which you will use for your course. How will you use this database for your course?
I study Cyber & Digital Security and I will be using "IEEE Computer Society Pick5 Package" database. It gives all the information about IT and it is relevant and accurate. I will use this database if I can't find any accurate information about my research topic.

This is my first time using second life. When I arrive TP-Campus 7.30pm - 8.30pm, there aren't any HK student. Therefore after 15mins later, I begin to go to HK campus to find HK friends to chat with. I am so grateful, I manage to find 2 HK students to chat with.
I only manage to ask 2 question about the EIR topic.
What have you gained from this e-learning experience?
I learn about time management. We need to be flexible in our timing and everyday life.
Do you have to observe special mannerisms/behaviours/ethics when meeting your
new friend on Second Life?
I just be who I am whenever I meet new friends.

Playing guitar is one of my hobby in life and I want to share it with all of you!! Playing guitar and singing can tune your emotional and feeling. This is the best part I love about guitar. I believe everyone had a life story song to play.
Playing guitar needs lots of practice and the spirit of "NEVER GIVE UP!" From the start when I startled to play, I keep on giving up because it so hard to pick up for me. But after 3months when I get the hand of it, I begin to love it so much. During good times, bad times, happy times, sad times, emo times, when you begin to play guitar, the song represent how you really feel. This is the best part! (:
