I’ve enjoyed this class so far. Everything is so fast-paced because it’s only a 6 week course, so sometimes it’s alot of work to have two big projects due each Monday. But I really enjoy going to class and learning this new skill, because it I believe it will be very useful for me in the future. Also, I like that it is pretty stress-less, practical, and not too difficult, since it’s for non-majors. So I don’t mind. Also, going to class and recitation is very helpful, because Ken is very knowledgeable as well as entertaining, and Michelle is very patient and helpful. I am happy with the class, and I like that we can always get help from Ken, Michelle, on iSpace, or from the other TAs.
I believe this web design class would be useful for anyone to take, but I believe it is especially useful in my case. I will be entering an Economics PhD program this fall, and I plan to be an Economics Research Professor. But the reason I am inspired to be an Economics Researcher is due to the impact I can have on policy, as well as regular peoples’ lives. My goal to publish papers is every bit as important as publicizing my ideas to the general public; a website would be an ideal place to start publicizing, and would have the ability to reach the widest audience. The school I will attend is even starting a public policy institute, where the graduate students can learn to publicize their research. Those skills together with this web design class should make me amazing at publicizing my research.
I have not designed a website in years. In middle school (15 years ago for me!), I had a very basic AOL website, but it was simple and I did not need to know much html. I know that alot has changed since then, even in the HTML coding world. I have been too busy to keep up with learning the new stuff or further advancing the basic knowledge I had, so this class will give me the perfect opportunity and motivation to do so. I am excited to learn about modern web design.
Hi everyone, welcome to my blog. This is my first post in my first blog. I love that I am taking this class. I feel that I will get so much out of it. Hopefully I am following the instructions well, and this will be a well-developed example of the first assignment! I hope everyone enjoys looking at the awesome pages and designs I made here. Maybe I will serve as a good example for someone in class. lol.
