ODT - 201504-03 4.0 Reflection Video Colby Johnson
ODT has not taught me much, but rather has guided me to verse myself on the various media and design industries. I have learned that game design is a beast that can be ridden in extremely different directions, whether it is towards virtual reality and storytelling or education. The possibilities in game design are truly as extensive as you want them to be!
This class absolutely confirmed my decision to pursue a degree in Game Design. The various designers I learned about and the duties of the profession are what made me strive to obtain a degree in this field.
What I Would Add
Find where your degree's jobs are in the world
Decide what company's in those locations you'd like to work for
Compare with where you live now
Create a plan of how to get there
What I Would Remove
It was not very helpful, and was tedious to say the least. Although the assignment may have allowed us to visualize the upcoming month, I hardly kept to what I had planned for, even though I felt organized and productive throughout the month.
1.1 Plan of Attack
2.0 Professional Spotlight
The Most Helpful Assignment
This assignment allowed me to discover an insane amount of information on multiple industries. Even though it only required three videos, I probably watched over 20 and was engaged the entire time!
