Web Scripting class wound itself up to a final project web site and before it was over, I was asking myself “what was I thinking?” I was a mess and was really questioning my choice of degree program. That is how bad this quarter was for me.
Constraints: A favorite band, 3 columns on the home page, 5 specific pages.
I chose a band that would be different from what is usually seen in the classrooms, yet would still provide content. The Cockman Family – Gospel Bluegrass fit my own criteria nicely.
There was more time spent on meeting the course rubric than on the physical design, but the “feel” I wanted to portray is “wholesome, family, folksy”. I am including 2 images here:
The teacher felt I could have done a better job creatively and I was dinged for that… jolly fine! I was just happy that I finally understood what I was doing. Burnout had set in. This class had been the most stressful of my entire life, partly because of allergy issues. It ended up being my first ever B+ because I missed 2 classes due to allergies, which dropped my A- below the tipping point. Those participation points really do make a difference!
