I feel like any college student gets by with the help of a check list. We go day in and day out running around this campus just marking things off this massive list. With that being said, I sit here, reflecting on the check lists of Com315 and cross off another thing from the “Finals Week Check List.”
Twitter. At the beginning of the semester we were required to create a Twitter account and update consistently. While I’ve already had an account for a while now, I thought it was interesting how we were able to utilize the technology in the classroom from tweeting useful facts and information to funny quotes we didn’t want to forget about. Check.
LinkedIn. After achieving 100% proficiency on LinkedIn I’ve found that this site truly is only useful in making connections for professional advancement and recommendations. I do, however, hope it will be useful as I begin the job search process at the end of the semester. Check.
VM. Our viral marketing campaign, mine particularly covering Going Green with Tom Pagut, was one of my favorite projects. It was fun to take something student created and try and push it to as many viewers as possible. While our tip off with WGAL wasn’t successful, we did reach our goal of 100 more viewers. Check.
Website. Working on the new ECTV website was, obviously, one of my favorite projects for the semester. I have such a passion for ECTV and to work together with Caitlin to help better the board and the station is extremely rewarding. For the most part, the site is complete. Once it’s able to be live more things will come together. I am very proud of the work Caitlin and I were able to put in, together, for this site that will now be able to be easily accessed and updated from any board member from any computer. Check.
Well, there we have it. Yet another “final assignment” checked off the list. Here’s to an excellent and successful first semester of my senior year.
