Web Graphics and Design

Recently in my web graphics and design class with Mr. Herz I was assigned to create a website for our end of the semester common task. Throughout this Common Task I learned all of the different aspects on creating and designing a website. During this particular course we learned everything individually and then were told to put it all together for our final common task. Coming into this class I had zero background knowledge, but leaving I am a lot more knowledgeable about the topic. I aquired a lot more knowledge and skill when it comes to computers and creating websites which I can use whether it be next week in school or 5 years at my job. These skills are important are important because our world of technolgy is constanting changing and it is important to stay up to date. To begin with, I made my pages and linked the pages to one another. Next, I researched my topic and subtopics and typed out paragraphs for each and found a picture to fit with them. Lastly I created a flash animation and incorporated it into my overall website. Some the obstacles I faced typically had to do with creating flash animations, but when it came to trouble shooting I asked the people around me and if they did not know the teacher did 100% of the time and was able to answer all my questions and concerns. This helped my understanding on web design because before I knew nothing and playing with the tools and figuring some of it out on my own helped me for future websites because the problems I had before I now know the answer inside and out. The completion of this task helped me better myself as a student because I will be able to help my fellow peers with my gained website skills making me a superior student. I anticipate on using this skill in my future if I ever become an entrepreneur and need a way to advertise my business I now can make a website without spending money on someone doing it for me.
