Reflecting December 13, 2011

Filed under: Online Journalism — mellio10 @ 6:28 pm

I would say that this has been one of my more challenging semesters.  My school work has definitely kept me busy this semester and it has been a challenge to try and manage everything.  My online journalism class has been one of my favorite classes that I have taken since being at UW.  It opened my mind up to the world of journalism and the possibilities that go along with being a communications major.

I would say that my favorite project was the group Soundslides.  I really enjoyed working with Sara Whittle and learning about the Trollbeads, which are a very unique part of Laramie.  It also gave me my first taste of melding audio and photojournalism together which I really enjoyed.

As far as my future goes, I believe that this course will be extremely beneficial.  Many of the internships that I have been applying for have been looking for individuals who are familiar with social media and blogs, as well as photography and audio so that they can promote a certain service or product in a more unique fashion.  This class has given me some of the tools I need in order to be an appealing candidate when applying for internships in the future.

As for my future academically, I am definitely considering taking on a journalism minor.  I really enjoyed this class and a journalism minor could probably be beneficial in the future.
