This class was tough.
My professor was focused, professional, yet approachable and accommodating. A couple of times she stayed behind after class to help me (and a few other classmates) work through a few "technical difficulties" that I experienced during an in-class practice assignment. She responded well to those who communicate with her and she makes efforts to have every student contribute to class discussions, individual and group assignments. Some of the more technical reading was particularly lengthy and difficult to wade through. I found myself skimming through for the more confusing bits so that I could ask questions about them in class.
This required course has been one of the most technical throughout my matriculation to date. Although I may have face it with a bit of trepidation as I am not the most tech savvy person, I knew it would be an important skill-building course. In this course we learned the mechanical basics of HTML, initiated our own class webpages for publicly sharing our research assignments and digital library and archival systems, created and updated a blogsite with our weekly reading reflections and questions, and more.
