In the beginning of this class I was a little on the fence about how well I’d do here, but I soon realized that my experience was based solely on how much I was willing to learn. I have to say I learned quite a few things. I know how to use Photoshop and movie maker but I learned new things like shortcuts on the keyboard instead of doing everything manually and clicking. I learned about websites to make GIFs and memes. But, one of the most important thing I learned is how to write a blog post. I learned that writing blogs are interesting to read and make and there aren’t any crazy rules like in essay writing.
Creating my own website was my favorite part of this class. It actually helped me realize that I really do have a passion for health and fitness. I knew that I wanted to change my Journalism major but I didn’t know what to change it to. Now I know that I’m so committed to this Nutrition things that I’m going to make the effort to transfer colleges just to fulfill a major in Nutrition and Fitness.
I’ll definitely be keeping my site because it’s such a good tool to help others with their personal goals, and to even network with the fitness world through various social medias. I didn’t think that I would be able to make friends outside o the class because of my personal blog and Instagram page. It’s a commitment but I am committed.
I thought that the class was run just fine, there was a lot of freedom and I think that that is necessary or a class like this because too much structure can be limiting to what we want to learn compared to what we would have to learn. I’m happy that we had options, and all around I thought it was a good experience. Compared to my first post which was extremely skeptical to now. I’m happy that I stayed attentive to the class and I pushed myself to produce some videos and try out some of the ds106 projects. It was a fun class to have taken!
