Reflection

To complete this task, I needed to create a website with a minimum of 8 pages and an original flash animation. I acquired the necessary skills to do this by completing assignments that were given in class throughout the year. By completing projects like the Flash Animation Copy and the various website editing activities found in the textbook, I learned how to create flash animations and successfully create and edit websites in HTML format. The skills required for creating flash animations were extremely important, as they are a necessity when completing this task, but the HTML skills were less important, as Adobe Dreamweaver simplifies the process of creating a website.

The process of creating my website began with the initial index page, which would serve as a directory to all of the other pages contained within the site. Next, I created the individual pages for all of my subjects, as well as a Works Cited page and a Reflection page. After acquiring information and images on my subjects, I imported the relevant information and images into the corresponding pages. After completing all of my pages, I created a navigation bar and a copyright note in my library and copied each of them into every individual page. Now that the majority of the website was finished, I began to create my flash animation. I ran into some issues while creating my flash, mostly due to images failing to be converted into objects and symbols, but I diagnosed my problems using trial-and-error and help from my peers, ultimately finding a means of fixing them. This task has showed me how difficult it is to properly create and maintain a website and has given me some perspective on how hard website designers work.

This task has helped me grow as a student because I am now able to effectively use Adobe Dreamweaver and Adobe Flash Professional and I am also able to do some basic HTML coding. I anticipate using these skills in the future when I create flash animations and websites.
