I took this class with the hopes to improve my writing skills and to try something new. This class has helped me learn about many different tools, on the computer, I can use in multiple instances in the future. I really enjoyed when we watched the video over photo journalists because it made me realize the true impact a picture can have on an audience. The only thing I disliked about this class was that I felt it was a little difficult to complete everything on time.
