Blog: Reflect on your process of building your website.
I've really enjoyed building the website. I feel that the courses prior helped me design the website and provided confidence that I can do it. Now that I have been immersed in Web 2.0 technology, I don't feel intimidated to try something technologically challenging.
I also feel supported. If I didn't have the support of professors, Cohort members, and others like Dr. Redmond, the Touro librarian, and Marie Zorn who have helped me along the way, I wouldn't have completed this graduate program and website. I also have to give a huge shout out to my wife Jennifer, who allowed me to spend endless hours troubleshooting my way through this graduate program and Capstone project.
Building this website is one of the things that intrigued me about enrolling in the Innovative Learning graduate program. I knew that to graduate, I would have to create a website, which has always been an interest of mine.
Creating this website feels like creating digital stories via Animoto and Powtoon. I love the experience, and wish I could use this template to create more websites, however, I am inspired to create my own website from scratch much like creating a digital story from scratch with tools like WeVideo.
I also hope that learning tools like WeVideo will help me to learn more advanced technological tools such as products put out by Adobe. This program has guided me to learn tools to utilize in the classroom and in my own personal hobbies of creating videos and using technology to connect lives.
I look forward to publishing the website to showcase all that I have learned to Touro, NapaLearns, NVUSD, cohort members, family and friends. The website is representative of all the hard work that I have put into this program and project as well as the support of family members who made it all possible. My parents laid the foundation for my education and my passion for it, and Jennifer and my two children were my kindred inspiration for completing this journey to help make better lives for our family.
