I was not without challenges as I progressed through this course. My main challenge was staying within the purpose of my documentation. I knew coming in that this was a hurdle that needed to be overcome to succeed in this course. Some to the essay assignments required that multiple drafts to help me defeat this literary foe. There were great tips in the virtual text book “Composure, Design, Advocate” that armed me with techniques to taper my essays to focus on the topics.
Abobe Slate was like a toy that I have wished existed but never imagine existed only to have a friend bring it to class for a show and tell presentation. The different features used to build an online publication were fantastic. The visual interactive documentation was great to me. I really enjoy what this program allowed for an author to grab the audience with pictures, videos and web links in a scrolling template. Just awesome.
I do feel I have room to improve. Composition and Literature were never my strong suit but after this class I feel better about how to compose writing. While I did reasonable ok in this course I did see a common criticism of “more explanation” with my writing. This tells me that I need to add more information from my research to support my topic.
I am not sure what my best work is to date. I feel each of my assignments could have been better but my assessment of “Radio Silence” I feel is when I started to gain more confidence is my ability to write an analytical essay.
