Final Blog Post

It was truly fun while it lasted. I have learned a whole lot in this class that I have not learned previously. There were many things I have learned this semester which in no particular order include making memes, Gifs, Blogs, Symbolic storytelling, and Website creation. Honestly making memes was one of my favorites. Making memes was by far my most favorite activity. This activity is what inspired my theme for my website. Another one of my favorite activities was taking photos using the panorama feature. I had never heard or used that feature before and was always quite curious of what it was used for. Working as a group gave everyone a chance to express themselves and share ideas on where and how to take the photo. It was a really fun and engaging activity.

The discussion on the topic of “are memes art?” was quite interesting.  we all shared our opinions on the topic and came to the conclusion that anything can truly be art if it can be shared and enjoyed by many.  Copyright was also a really interesting topic we delved on. From what I have seen in the media copyright is not something to be played around with. I learned that using someone’s intellectual property without consent or negotiation can result in a lawsuit against you and the removal of said content. When it comes to blogging it is crucial to use royalty-free photos and videos as well as your own to prevent issues further down the line.

It was truly a fun ride and I cannot wait to see what else CT has for me to offer. I hope everyone is doing fine and staying safe during this pandemic.

When I first signed up for this CT 101 class I honestly didn’t know what I was getting myself into .My main reason for taking  this class was because I needed an elective  credit to graduate. I took this class because it doesn’t have any relationship to my psychology major. I wanted to branch out and try a new course for once because I am so accustomed to taking courses where professors lecture all the time and students take notes and get tested based on what they learned. I thought that this class would be very different, interesting, fun, and creative. Honestly I really enjoyed taking this class because it was everything that I hoped that it would be. Taking this class was a wonderful learning experience for me because I got to be creative and forget about facts and theories.

I really liked doing the group work to create the sound for a silent video because all the students had the opportunity to collaborate, interact and work with one another. The thing that I value the most learning was learning to make GIFS. GIFS are fun and so easy to make. I really wished that we learned more skills and techniques that I can use in my everyday life such as editing photos. I wished that our professor could have put tutorials online showing us how to create a wide range of digital story techniques.

My future plans for my personal site is to shut down my website because I really don’t have any intentions of putting up more work . I mainly created this website because it was a necessity to have the website for this CT 101 course. I like having a website of my own to show the work that I have done through out the semester. Honestly I feel like if I keep my website I will be neglecting it because I am graduating college and have other obligations. I am really glad that I made a wise decision in taking this CT 101 course because it was a learning experience for me.
