Design Tutorial Reflection

Introduction

In class during this project I thought making the iMovie was fun but challenging because it was my first time doing an individual project in iMovie and I learned a lot of new stuff during this project. Also it was my first time making a tutorial and I think it cam out pretty well.

Connect

My design specifications are to have a clear voice, to add wrights or wrongs, to show the materials you need, to show good and bad examples of something, and to have the level of difficulty written in the beginning of the video. I reached my most of my design specifications but I didn’t do wright and wrong because they were too similar to good and bad.

Blogs I commented on : Takumi, Jaehyun, Yuichiro

when I watched the video I learned that in every video there is some space for improvement and that it is hard to make your video perfect. I think also some people spent more time on there intros than their videos but I think that is good because it’s lake a hook in a book, if your intro is good people will want to see more.

Challenge

A couple of challenges along the way were learning how to use iMovie and now I think I can make more videos because I had lots of friends to help me. Another challenge I had was how to take my video when to take my video. It was hard to find a good place to talk my video from a good angle but I ended up balancing my phone on the edge of a desk it messed me up a little bit because I had a white bar across the top of my video. And it was had to decide when to take my video and that was hard because I am busy almost every day so I don’t have much time to take the video because the video takes LOTS of time.

Conclusion

I learned a lot of stuff during this project like how to use iMovie and I am glad I learned how to use iMovie because in future assignments I will be able to make videos. I learned about iMovie by getting help from lots of my friends now I know how to make my video play backwards or make it slow motion or fast motion. I enjoyed making the story board and plan my tutorial. also I liked drawing my apple but it was a bit challenging to find time to do it. Overall this project was really fun and also it was my last project for this year because the 1st semester is over!

Design Reflection Developing Ideas

So far in class we have been making a story board for our tutorial that we are going to make and also we learned a bit of how to use I movie. I think that learning new things about I movie was pretty interesting and and it was my first time making a storyboard.

I think my story board met my design specifications because I had a level of difficulty, a good bad comparison, the materials you will need, and right or wrong comparison. I demonstrated my level of difficulty the beginning of the video along with the materials you will need. I also showed the correct kind of shape for your apple outline with good and bad examples.

I think the key features of my tutorial is that it has a list of all the materials you will need and it also has a level of difficulty. Also it has what to do and what not to do. I think that knowing all the materials you will need makes my tutorial a good one because not many tutorials have the materials you will need.

To be able to create my tutorial I will need to learn a few more tricks on I movie like voice over, or how to compare with side by side and all those complicated stuff.

In class I think I enjoyed making my story board the most because it was my first time ever making storyboard and I liked drawing the pictures. I would like to improve on learning more stuff on I movie. Next I want to learn how to do add music from garage band to your I movie.

Inquiring and Analyzing Reflection

So far we have been learning how to use are time efficiently and how to make tutorials. To me I liked making my small thirty minute presentation because it taught me how to use my time efficiently and how to use google presentations. It’s interesting how many types of tutorials there are like a video or a presentation, picture.

Tutorials solve lots of problems like how to draw stuff how how to cook or almost anything! So I think we should make more tutorials to show of what you know and to help people try new things. And nowadays I think everyone learns how to cook or how to draw or stuff like that all from tutorials because its quick to learn and free.

Some of the key learnings I learned from my tutorial research is that to me I like the videos with someone talking instead of music and to me it was much easier if the video was high quality than low quality. and especially if your drawing you need to see high quality to see the details.this is my favorite tutorial.

For my tutorial I will try to make it as clear as possible and to have a loud and clear voice. The reason I need to have clear video quality is because I will do drawing and if they can’t see the details of what i’m doing they will get lost and stop watching. I need to have a clear voice because if I don’t people won’t know what I am talking about again they will get lost and stop watching. I commented on some of my friends blogs, Conner, and , Keita.

Next I would still like to learn how to stay focus and on task without getting distracted.I would like to learn how to get high quality on a video thats from your phone or computer. I enjoyed making my first tutorial along with learning how to make a google presentation.

My Favorite and my least Tutorial – How to draw a glass of water and how to draw a cartoon pizza

This is my favorite tutorial because at the end he showed what he used so I could make the drawing my self. Also he fast forward the video so his watchers wouldn’t get bored and stop watching (I mean who wants to watch a vedio of a guy drawing for six hours.) right?

 

Now this is my LEAST favorite tutorial.

This video was not that good because he had a very thick accent of a language (i’m not sure what language) I think he should of added sub titles. Also at some points his hand covered the drawing so I couldn’t see the whole drawing so it was hard to see what he was drawing.

Blog Tips and Tricks

So everyone wants a cool background and stuff right? I mean who doesn’t, Right? anyways on your blog you have a background you got from the internet and when you put it in your blog it is usually tiled and that usually doesn’t look to good right? so what you can do is find a picture off of the internet and it will say view image with some thing like 1265 x 526 and that is the hight and width of the image and if you find a large image you click view image and at the top click file then click save page as then click desk top and click done and put that as your blog background image and press un-tile.

Developing Ideas Reflection

So far in class we have been drawing what we want our blogs to look like and we made a document of how to grow a blog, I liked when we drew our blog pictures because it was really fun and it’s going to fun to try to make those designs on our blog. And the pictures that I put on there are some of my favorite things

I drew this blog theme because it looks pretty awesome and it also shows my passion of drawing and all of my favorite colors. And also it is one of a kind and no one can copy it because I will try to put the pictures that I drew myself on my blog.

 I need to know how to let people know that my blog is out there and how to communicate through a blog. And I plan to learn these things by looking on youtube and asking other people.

Inquriring & Analyzing Reflection

Hi this is Kai, and in class we have been making blogs. I thought that it was really fun to research and design my blog. I have learned that you can change the background and add widgets, headers, footers, and you can change the theme of the page.

 I think you need a blog to share your ideas and work to the world. Having a blog will make it easier to share your work to other people instead of presenting it to them in person. Having a blog will also help you learn more about computers.

 I think the three things that make a good blog are the Links, The Design, and The Title. The links are important because you can make new friends online and you can link their blog. the design is also important because that is what makes a people want to look into your blog more. And lastly the title is important because well who would want to click on a link called “My Blog” I would only click on that by mistake… which happens a lot to me… OK anyways those are the three most important things to make a blog interesting.

 Well I have finished the design of my blog and the title but I am not sure about the links but I will be sure to ask my teacher.

 I would like to learn more about how to do more stuff with the computer and I enjoyed designing my blog and making my blog. Thanks for reading and I hope you didn’t get bored.
