WHAT WAS ONE ASSIGNMENT THAT YOU REALLY THOUGHT WAS HELPFUL OR THAT YOU REALLY LEARNED SOMETHING USEFUL?
1.2 INDUSTRY WEBSITES
I will continue to use the graphic design websites to remain knowledgable and familiar with the latest changes and trends reguarding my industry. I now understand the importance of reading trade papers, magazines, blogs, and websites. There is so much information to stay current on; software updates, tricks of the trade, the movers and shakers, and where the industry is headed.
WHAT IS ON THING YOU WOULD ADD TO THIS COURSE?
The 2.2 Industry Terms assignment helped me understand and identify specific terms used across the industry. It is important to use the correct terms while communicating with other professionals. I would like to have seen an assignment similar to the 2.2 assignment that focuses on the tools, techniques and software used in the industry. This would help us understand in further detail what kind of work we will encounter in our career. What software is considered a "design standard", What can it do, etc.
WHAT IS ONE THING YOU DID NOT FIND USEFUL OR WOULD REMOVE FROM THE COURSE?
1.1 PLAN OF ATTACK I understand the importance of planning ahead to schedule schoolwork, jobs, children, relationships with friends, family, and significant others, pets, and potential illness and unexpected emergencies. This assignment could be useful for some students, but I personally did not feel that it was helpful in my case. I did not use the spreadsheet I created for this assignment, instead I Iater created a daily planner to plan ahead.
