My Last First Day of School
What did you think on the first day of the CT101?
On the first day of CT101, I experienced some anxiety. I had no idea what to anticipate. Although it is well outside of my area of expertise, I thought it would be a fun subject to take as an elective during my final semester. Unbeknownst to me, I had a friendly deaf professor who understands the pressure and ridiculous demands of many other professors. He is the first professor I have ever had who is deaf but he is also the best professor I have ever had in my four years at York. Since my nerves had disappeared by the end of class, I had the impression that this was going to be an enjoyable class. It is good to have a lecturer that encourages students to express themselves.
Did you like hearing about the course and its creative content? How did it make you feel?
The potential for a student to express themselves is something that is lacking from many courses, but this course has a lot of originality, and I love it. It’s a place where I can just be myself without having to worry about anything, unlike many of my other classes.
How does CT101 compare to some of your other classes so far?
This is not only my favorite class this semester, this is my favorite class for all my four years. I truly believe it will be hard to bet especially with me only having one semester left after this. This class allows me time to breathe rather than all my other courses I’ve taken. I’m always stressed in my other classes because there’s always some kind of issue either with the professor or the deadline of an assignment is always changing but they’re never on the blackboard when they’re supposed to be. This class I get to express myself through gifs and memes. I get to tell my stories and learn how to upgrade my knowledge on digital tools to express myself freely. There will be no class better than CT 101 in my opinion.
What are the creative potentials of this class?
This class has endless potential. The ability to learn how to tell stories using various digital technologies is limitless. Learning new abilities is thrilling and enjoyable at all times. I can use this class to better the skills I already know and love. I am currently working to set up my own photography business and this class is just helping me get that much closer to my goal.
How do you feel about learning new skills that use Internet tools?
I am always eager to pick up new abilities. Why not learn how to use some online tools to express oneself, especially given how frequently we use the internet these days. I can’t wait to learn more. Learning how to use hyperlinks and create gifs was fun and informative.
How do you say it / pronounce it? Gi-f or Ji-f?
I will forever say Ji-f since the first time I heard it. It will now and forever be a soft g never the hard g no matter what anyone says to me that is the end of the battle. NO MORE ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
