The Mid-Semester Assessment Post

How am I doing in CT 101? What grade do I believe I am maintaining?

I think I am doing well in CT 101. I was a bit worried at the start that I would not be able to function well since I am not used to online but with prof. Ryan that has not been the case. This class is the most enjoyable class that I have this semester and I like the things that I have learned. I am able to use gifs efficiently and I can make them whenever I want now. I want to say I am maintaining an A- right now. I am caught up on my post and have joined the classes regularly. I have commented on classmates’ posts, as for my post I think they are going well but can use a bit of improvement. 

What have I learned the most? What is my greatest learned asset in this class so far?

What I have learned the most so far is the use of Gifs. I had said this to the professor when I was talking to him. I use Gifs more often now because I enjoy making them and using them. They are fun to me and there are so many that can be created. I am glad I learned the usage of gifs.

My greatest learned asset so far in this class is learning the blog post. Posting different weeks and reading what others post is a cool aspect that I like. I do not mind posting weekly, responding to others, being creative.

What skills have I developed, cultivated, and displayed regularly in my posts?

For this, I would put the use of memes or gifs. I will start using them more for sure in my blog post, but it is definitely memes or gifs.

How do I assess my performance through self-reflection in this class?

For this, I would say by my blog post. When I’m in the lecture I’ll either talk sometimes or just listen for most of it. When I do the blog post I am being creative, putting down different answers and ideas, trying to be creative. The blog post shows how much effort I’m putting in and they are a good recap to go back to. Now let’s take a look at my blogpost

 Post 1 My first post was asking what makes me happy on the internet. At the time, it was Minecraft. Minecraft became my second favorite game and I really enjoyed playing and watching it.

Post 2 my second post was about making gifs. I had a lot of fun making gifs and this was probably the most fun assignment for me. I liked doing this and will use this for future purposes.

Post 3 This post, I was glad to make memes. I was having fun with this and making different things left and right. I still remember watching and looking at memes daily a few years ago. I still look at memes daily, even though they are different. Memes are fun to make and I will continue making them. 

Post 4 This post was about DS160. This is the post that I had the most trouble with. Taking a screenshot from the computer and uploading it gave me the most trouble. 

Post 5 This post was about picking a Domain name. I actually enjoyed doing this. It made me think about the comics that I want to do and produce. I thought about some more domain names but didn’t like them as much.

What do I know now that I did not know before taking this class?

One main thing would be the amount of money that people make from memes. When we had the discussion that people not only bought memes but they also sold millions for a meme, I was amazed. I knew that people loved to make memes, but hearing that amazed me. Another thing was gifs. I now know how to make gifs and apply them for myself.

Do I see my weekly blogging work expanding creatively? If so, please explain –  or am I stuck in a loop where my posts seem to look the same most of the time, how will I change that?

I do not think that I am in a loop, I think that I should use more creativity in my post. I think adding more gifs, memes or something else can expand my post. My post are not usually short, but they do seem short. This is something I will definitely work on.
