My favorite projects for this semester were the SoundSlide projects. Even though they were difficult at times, especially when trying to line the audio up with the photos, I thought it was an interesting concept. I also learned that I enjoy editing audio because there are a lot of things that can be done with audio that I never realized before.
One of the skills that I learned about was how to edit audio. Once we started learning about audio I was fairly nervous because I never worked with it before, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was. It was definitely tedious, but it wasn’t as hard as I would have thought.
I also learned a lot about html coding that I had never learned before. This too is a tedious process and I never knew that a web page was created through coding. We only did a few web page projects and I struggled with both of them, so I hope I will learn more and become better at html coding in my Advanced New Media class.
Though I don’t think that I would like to do web pages for a living, I think it is a skill that can be useful in many career fields. At this point, I am not sure exactly what field I will go into but I am applying for internships at ESPN and NBC and both networks put a lot of emphasis into their web pages so I feel like these skills could be beneficial to my future career choices.
I do wish that we could have learned about web page design since I have never had any experience in that area. I think learning how to design a web page could be interesting and could also be a valuable skill.
