In this course, I was supposed to learn how to create a blog. As you can see from the posts in this blog – including this one – I can say with certainty that this is something I learned.
The course was very useful, and I enjoyed creating the blog posts. While preparing content for the blog, I had a chance to learn how to record audios, videos and take interviews. I also learned how to take clear photos and the right way to edit them.
One of the things that made this course so enjoyable is that it is very practical, and I can use what I learned to create a blog. I was very happy to be a part of the group that I was in, as every one of my team members was very helpful and cooperative. Working as part of a group to complete a project, taught me how to work as part of a team, and how to overcome challenges such as convincing others to consider my suggestions, sharing of ideas and tasks, and coordinating with each other to complete the delivery of the project before the due date.
Although the course was supposed to last about 3½ months, due to the pandemic and the stoppage of classes, it has taken almost 9 months. This also affected the way we were able to gather content for the blog, particularly where we had to interview people at their workplaces, as several people we approached were not able to help us due to restrictions imposed by the government to prevent the spread of the Corona virus. Of those people whom we were able to interview, we learned a lot not only about their work, but their background as well, which gave us a personal insight into their lives.
Finally, what I also learned from the course was that blogging can be a very powerful medium to share stories that can be fun, inspiring, educational, emotional, and influential. I hope you enjoyed reading my posts, and that you too have been inspired, educated, and had fun. If so, please let me know how you felt about my blog in the comments below. Perhaps I have convinced you to also make your own blog and share your stories with others!
