Welcome to my life
It's one of life's greatest mysteries for someone like me who rarely uses it for anything at all when I could have made my work finish much faster, but whatever. This time around, we're supposed to recreate a classroom scene through excel, and create a table where we are to key in the approximate number of subjects we took during SPM and key in the marks. Aside from the guidance for the more complicated stuff, how we deal with it is entirely up to us.
What made this FAR easier was the fact that we can actually key in random marks for each subject, or use the marks that we've obtained and remembered (thanks goodness we can just randomly key them in though). After that, we had to create a graph to show the statistics of the marks.
Well, I can say for sure that we've learned lots of new things while dealing with Excel, as we'd usually avoid it at all costs when doing projects unless one is well-versed with computers enough to be able to do it.
And, just so you know, this is the last reflection post I'll be doing for this semester. It's been a ride I'm not sure of, but it's good some pretty good memories in store for me.
Until then, tata!
You know, when we were told to create our own video about our chosen topics, it kinda caught us by surprise. Well, it does seem kinda obvious that almost nobody checked the Assignment list on GE1155's Weebly page because that would have been too far ahead.
The thing is, it would just be like any other ordinary video, except that we would need to have our own storyboards and scripts to work with as well. It would be like a "show" of some sort. Fair enough, as we've done simpler videos, so why not try something a lot more complex eh? (2lazy4me2do)
It was just another one of those moments where we'd learn through methods OUT of class, kinda like the Flipped Learning sessions during LLS (or Language Learning Strategies, if you fancy).
I hate brochures.
No, really. They're my least favorite of all the things I've done in CiE class. And it doesn't help that I've got a general distaste of them (because of reasons)
Aside from all the hate, one of the useful things I've learned is that simplicity is really the way to go when it comes to making stuff like that (refer to the post about CASPER, if you want). Now I understand why I've always hated brochure, they were far too cluttered and messed up due to the large amount of visual items placed on that small piece of paper.
And now that I've learned how to create one, it doesn't take too much to relay the info you wanted to give readers while not distracting/obstructing their view with too much stuff.
Hoo boy, here it comes. The quintessential part of any semester in university life: reports!
To be honest, this semester hasn't been very productive for me. It may have something to do with adjusting myself with the entire atmosphere at UKM. OF COURSE, there's still a report that has to be done.
I was completely confused with the entire "Gaya Penulisan UKM" thing, but it turned out to be not TOO bad to say the least. In the end, the report was kind of finished successfully.
This post is incredibly short.
Just when you thought you were through and through with surveys, but NOPE! :D
Now you have to answer other people's surveys.
I'll admit, it was pretty fun answering them most of the time, but not as much for the other times. Why? Because some of the questions are repetitive and the rest makes you go "You don't say?"
But delving deeper into it, actually give some insight on how questions are arranged, how they are structured, the formats chosen for them. There's actually more than meets the eye. I would say that it was a pretty fun experience picking the surveys to answer and taking quick jabs at the questions though.
I'll be completely honest, creating a survey is on of my least favourite things to do that is computer-related.
It was simply time consuming and annoying, especially when it comes to creating questions (and I'm bad when coming up with systematic-ish questions).
But the fun part was actually coming up with the questions anyway, as you can somewhat use your brain to come up with something creative.
All in all, it was an okay experience. Not necessarily bad, but it was mainly because I'm not very fond of surveys.
All of their initials form the word "CASPER". I bet your mind has been blown now right? Well, so was mine when I first heard of it.
Anyone who has learned Art in school will at least understand the concepts. But they're not for Art though (sadly) as they are mostly used as reference and guide when doing any computer work (assignments, posters, etc etc). It teaches you on how to NOT ruin a perfectly good chance to produce something nice from your laptop, as there are times when one has too many ideas and decided to fit them all into that one small document in Microsoft Word or so, causing it to be completely messed up.
Still, it's a nice reminder that things don't have to be too complicated to be nice and all that.
"What it LMS? What is CMS? What is everything? WHAT IS LIFE?!"
No, I'm not exaggerating my reaction. Considering the fact that it was my first time listening to the term LMS and CMS, it was no surprise that I was left completely clueless when we first started learning about it.
It took me a while, but I was finally able to understand bits and pieces of it. Of course, there's Mr. Google to thank, and also there's help from my classmates.
Obviously, I won't go into details as to what actually LMS and CMS, as I've done that in the Assignments section, but if you are the type who's tl;dr, then the first sentence describes my entire experience with it.

Assalamualaikum and a very good day to all.
"3 hours?! OMG" was the first thing that came to mind when I learned about the 3-hour long Computer in Education class. I felt like that there was no other choice, that I'll have to endure a boring class that's all about slides and explanations about how the importance of computers when it comes to education.
I have never been so wrong (for now).
What actually happened was that I - no, we - were exposed to a whole new world of computers that have never been explored by some, if not most of us. We were introduced to creating our own websites, designing it, and making good use of it. We were given a chance to feel like a full-fledged educator dealing with websites for the sake of those who are being educated, and that's the direction that we're taking in the future.
All in all, I'd say that the session was far better than what I expected, and I am looking forward to do more stuff with the computer (and the fast internet speeds) in future sessions.
That's all from me for now, tata!
