    • Hi Matthew,

      Nice to meet you as well. Congratulations on almost making it to the finish line with your MSc IS program. 

      Your post mentioning the future of social media and how it impacts your family and kids resonates with me. We opted for online year of schooling for our son last year who was in kindergarten at the time, and had to use Google Classroom. I was not very comfortable for him to have an online presence at such a young age; however, given the unprecedented circumstances with the pandemic, we felt it was a sacrifice we had to make for his safety and well-being. 

      I look forward to collaborating with you and the rest of the colleagues as well! 

      Kind Regards,

      Rayees

    Sorry for the delayed reply, David - I missed the notification for this. It concerns me greatly that you received no feedback - your tutor should have been doing this, so something must have gone quite wrong if you didn't get any at all. I'm afraid...

    From my understanding the grades for each unit are not actually what are used for the final mark, but just show that you have done the work and the final portfolio and how to link it to your site is what matters the most. I could be mistaken talk to...

    I've overall really enjoyed AWS Educate, but some changes earlier this year make it an overall worse experience. The main new wrinkle is automatically shutting down EC2 instances when you are "logged out". While I do understand that new to AWS...
