The most interesting work that I have completed so far for this course has to be the creation of a GIF image. As a kid, I would see GIF images online and be fascinated at how something other than a video can be in motion. Creating one allowed me to see how it is possible and how something that appeared strange to me, came to be. The least interesting project would have to have been the printing and pasting of images together into one piece. I definitely enjoyed the assignment and in no way disliked it, I just found it to be least interesting as I have done work of the same nature before so it wasn’t something new to me. Things such as news on wars, basketball coverage, and cars would surely inspire me to create work, reflect on it and post on it as it is all stuff that I can be surrounded by and not once want to escape it. These are also things I like to believe I have good knowledge on and don’t mind sharing it with others. In comparison to traditional courses, this course is more difficult because there is much less class time dedicated to the completion of work leaving a large part of it to be done at home. Problems with this include easily being distracted when on the web, poor time management not allowing for sufficient time planning of work and technical malfunctions which can prevent the work from being completed. Everything has both pros and cons(except water) and pros to this type of course include being able to access virtually anywhere, complete work whenever a free moment presents itself as well as more time to study up on work if at home doing it. In terms of the class, I don’t see myself exactly where I want to be to state the least. I want to be at the “A” category and know that work has to be done! In order to get there, the motivating factor for me will mainly be points. I understand that a point range exists in which the grade of “A” is issued, therefore I want to be in that range by completing all assignments and picking up 100% where I left off on.
