Working on two digital pieces simultaneously will definitely not be an easy feat. As I said in my last blogpost, I am seriously technologically challenged. That being said, the process hasn’t been as terrifying as I expected it to be. For my remediation project, I’m working on a video ad campaign. Initally, I was using a website called Viddyad and the process was going smoothly. Of course, the process became less smooth when I realized I would have to pay 500 dollars to record a voice over (as I had planned) and share the ad. New plan: iMovie. Fortunately, I don’t really plan to change my storyboard because iMove can do everything (and more) that viddyad can do.
My mockup for my ePortfolio did not come as naturally to me as the storyboard for my remediation project. For the first half of class, I couldn’t decide if I wanted to make the portfolio more professional–including my resume, other pieces of writing I’ve completed, and a link to my linkedin account–or more thematic. Part of me wanted to go the professional route; I’m going to be spending a lotttt of time on this, I might as well make it useful for more than class. But at the same time, I felt really passionate about continuing on with my criminal justice topic I’ve used throughout the semester. I went with criminal justice. I figured, my interests and all my papers for the minor revolve around criminal justice. If a future employer were to look at the portfolio in a professional style, it would still solely be comprised of things relating to criminal justice.
