Our last and final blog post for class was to reflect on our semesters work in the course.
During the semester there were several projects I had to work on, but there were only a few that I actually was satisfied with the end project. The one I most enjoyed working on was the individual Soundslides project. I had the chance to interview April C Hughes who provided me with a fountain of audio to work with. The final result especially the audio came out really nicely. It was also one of the easier projects to work on. Sounslides is a great program I enjoyed, I only wishes I knew how to HTML format the end result.
I learned how to edit audio well in this course. Although I don’t think I will be doing a lot of audio editing as a farmer I still think it could prove to be a nifty tool. I like to think that I have become a better interviewer. Some of my interviews have been poor to say the least however; the comments I was provided with from the professor have been helpful.
My plan after graduating in May is to be a farmer in California. Next semester I am looking forward to taking a class titled Organic Farming, which I am hoping will prove useful as I begin my career on an organic farm. This course did not change my mind about my future career path, but I did find the course very interesting and would love to learn more about HTML formatting. There were no skills that I was expecting to learn that I didn’t gain. This course was everything I expected it to be.
In general I really enjoyed the course. I feel I learned a lot related to the journalism field. Most of the courses I have taken were very non-hands on. However I felt that I actually learned how to do something and if I wanted I could go out and have a particle idea of what needs to be done. For that I thank you Professor Landerville.
