Sometimes I’m overwhelmed by life in and of itself. Not in the traditional definition of the word which is to defeat completely. It’s a scenario where you have to view it in a different sense of the word. I recently watched Dead Poets Society for the first time. Robin Williams is one of my favorite … More Overwhelmed

For my summary of learning assignment I wanted to highlight the main things we focused on in the class with simple images. Design, copy, and videos were the biggest topics we focused on. I wanted to show future students what the class would entail. I especially wanted to mention video because that was a bit of a surprise to me this semester. And that the video portion did take up a lot of our time. 

Overall it was a fun semester, I enjoyed learning new skills and design techniques. The weekly challenges I thought were a great way to introduce us to the subjects with something fun and manageable for beginners. Writing blog posts was a nice way for us to practice writing for the public and to keep you updated with what we were doing. Especially this being an online course, the blog posts helped keep us all connected as a class.
