Q1: For the very first project of this class we created our own websites.
Q2: My quarter 2 project was CodeHs which is a programming website. It has 15 lessons that you do and within the lessons you learn how to code and make Karel do different things.
Q3: For my Q3 project I choose to do a gameplay because i figured that it would an easy project to do. My overall vision of this project was to share something i enjoy doing in my freetime with everyone else. Overall my project was a success, a failure i had was uploading it to youtube from my game system.
Revised benchmark: For my revised benchmark i decided to edit my Q2 benchmark because 1, I really enjoyed doing it and 2, I wasn’t able to complete all the lessons and move onto the challenges.
Course Growth: Throughout this course i had a lot of ups and downs especially when i first started the class. An area that i grew in was submitting the checkpoints on time and getting work done in class. During my time in this class i personally feel as though that i really didn’t learn nothing new but a way I could use some of the skills demonstrated inside of class, outside of class is by doing a website for a personal assignment. Three tips I would give someone taking this class next year would be: submit work on time, stay focused during the class period and be on time because that will eventually affect your grade.
My project was Video Editing where you basically record something of your choosing and edit it. So i choose to do a game play for the game Assassin's Creed The Ezio Collection. A success i had while doing this project was recording it because it was very simple to do. A failure i had was actually trying to play it due to the fact I only play my game on the weekends. Also another failure was uploading it to youtube because for some reason it would never work right. I overcame both failures, 1. by bringing my game system to school I could record here as well as at home. 2. Doing a live broadcast of my game play and recording the audio on my phone. Something I learned about myself while completing this was project was that I am somewhat good at doing commentary and that I might be able to do this for real.
