Hello guys, so I am a logistics and supply chain major. I took this class because I needed an elective for my last semester. I though this was going to be a class all about creating a website and the complication of creating a website. I felt like I got slapped in the face after the professor went through the syllabus on the first day.
After we went through the syllabus on the first day, this class seemed pretty interesting to me. Learning the history of digital media is something I never thought about.
I am very familiar with things like access, excel and different SAP systems. I usually work anywhere from 45 to 55 hours a week, so my work life is very stressful and time consuming. Unfortunately, I am not a huge poster on social media like Tik Tok and Instagram. I like to keep my life private for the most part. I hope that I can express myself a bit more towards the end of this class using memes or Gifs I have created now and in the future.
In comparison to my other classes, this class is interesting because of the engagement and self expression we have. I am currently taking 5 classes. I enjoy 2 of the 5 classes I am currently taking. All of my other classes are death by slide show.
In my opinion, one of the biggest take away from this course will be the different ways we can convey a message. Sometimes people respond to things that are relatable and pops out at them. For example, when I end a text with my wife I send an emoji, Gif or meme. She always gets a kick out of it and I am still able to express myself.
