Q6.What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product?
I have used Microsoft PowerPoint create my slideshows and presentation for most of my work.

Adobe Audition 3
Adobe Audition 3 is an audio editing program that allows people to edit music and audio files.

By using this software, I found out how to edit my sound files. I used program for my interviews and audience feedback.
This program I have used often to type most of my work. For the evaluation task, the planning and research is where I used this program the most

Blogger is a blog publishing service that offers users to make blog posts. I used this service to upload all my work. I could have used wordpress.com or blogspot.com instead but it is much easier and simpler to work with Blogger in my opinion. This is the first time I made a blog and I found that it is one of the simplest things a regular internet surfer can use. It was quick, efficient and easy to use.
Scribd is a document sharing service that allows users to upload documents, for the use of storing and sharing the documents. This is the first time that I have used this service. During my coursework I have used this service multiple times, uploading documents like some word documents containing so colour combinations I said I would use. All I needed to do was upload the file and copy the embed code onto the HTML code for the post.
