I really enjoyed learning to write for computer screens and digital composition. My favorites were background color, font and size of font, and how short the text sections are. My least favorite and the area I struggled with was finding an appropriate video and inserting it into the text in the correct spot to match the material being discussed. In Essay 2, Downloaded, the video I really wanted to use I couldn't make it make sense in the context of the paper so I had to use one that I had already seen somewhere else online. I started with an interview that wasn't in the movie and that didn’t work as well as I thought in my first draft, so I changed it to the YouTube clip from the movie for my submission. Then in my paper on Water I inserted video about water situations in other countries including Australia to impress the global part of the issue on the readers and I’m still not sure about that insertion. It fits, but not completely to my satisfaction.
More Facts Less talking
Of all the things that I struggled with, I think I still really need to work on trying to ensure I keep more factual data in my assignments and less anecdotal information in them. I just can’t seem to manage to get past putting in my own experiences and then I run out of time and room for anything else. In Essay 2, Downloaded, I put in way too much anecdotal information and I still haven’t figured out how to remove the majority of it.
