Persuasive Writing,Spanish 2, and Media and Society are all classes we as students have to take in our journey to recieve a college degree. What the system does not tell you is a lot of those “required” classes never make the cut in the real world, however, one class has made a remarkable difference in our degree seeking adventure: Electronic Communications.
Electronic Communication started off as a basic “here is a mac and here is how to use it” strutured class but quickly turned high tech.
Wordpress, Garage Band, and PhotoShop were introduced to the class and a whole new world opened up. WordPress I found to be a simple program to use and of great importance to any journalist’s future career. Garage Band, although annoying, found to be a useful tool in editing voices and podcasts. Finally, PhotoShop, which led to touching up many distorted and rough pictures made all projects turn out cleaner and more precise.
Electronic Communications also taught the class how to use programs such as Soundslides and Imovie. These programs simplified editing of picture podcasts and eventually video podcasts. Truth be told, I had no idea how to create and upload YouTube videos until this class.
Since the class, I have used many of these programs in my daily life and plan on using all of them at one time or another in my upcoming internship and inevitable career.
Many thanks to Jory and the experiences she shared with our class. I have learned more than you know. Good Luck to you and your family. God Bless you future!
