What I have gained...

This assignment was the first thing that made me sit down and start working on my thesis (that’s a big benefit at itself). During this assignment I  did some practice on my ability to "skim" throw a lot of information and "dig" out what's relevant. Another thing I gained from this assignment is the access to more resources and information.   Although I was skeptical, the suggestions from the "scoop.it" website were relevant to my subject and at times I even came across academic articles. As I'll continue working on my thesis I will use this website.
