Question: What are the challenges and opportunities for building your online identity?
From my own perspective, now a days, building your online identity is important. However, there’s a lot of risks you might encounter online. I think one of the challenges is to avoid connecting with some you’re not so important peers. For sure, they would got offended and probably misinterpreted for “Unfriend” them not knowing for just protecting your digital footprint. Moreover, I would like to extend my network of course to my family in social media, trusted friends and some important, or I would say important peers and organization. #lida102

Question: In a digital age, how important is it for you to build a digital footprint of your learning?
It’s important because this digital footprint of your learning is evidence that you have learned what you have claimed to have learned. #lida102
