Question 6 - What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product ? (Slideshare/Blogspot)
‘Slide Share’ Throughout the course of building a blog, I found ‘Slide Share’ to be a very useful programme. It is good because it engages the reader much more than plain text. The reader is instead able to interact with what it is I – as the author – have published. I have enjoyed making use of Web 2.0 during this course, and have learnt alot about keeping the audiences interests through the use of programes such as ‘Slide Share’.
Blogspot As the scriptwriter, Blogspot became my greatest attribute. With Blogspot I am able to keep a constanly updated journal on the work I am producing. This helps because it also allows me to change and edit previous work, and as the scriptwriter in a group of four, I found that I was constantly making amendments to the script. However this was only possible because I was able to post my most recent work on Blogspot ,so that the rest of my group were able to instantly view and comment.
Overall Overall, I have learnt that the second generation of internet has enabled us to keep up to date with each others work. This proves especially helpful whilst working in groups, as it is fast and reliable. Without Web 2.0, we would inevitably have to revert back to the use of CD ROM or USB. However these are not always possible, and often need to be dealt with face to face. Web 2.0 solves all of this, and I am glad it is a part of our course as media students.
