In Web Design, we do so many different activities! This week, we worked on a project! The project wasn't one big thing, but many small things. We had the freedom to pick what we wanted to do, as long as it added up to 90 points. The projects I decided to do were the Game Project, Book Creator Project, Coding, and the Animation Project. After each day of hard work, we had to make a blog post explaining what we accomplished that day!
First, I worked on my own game! Using an iPad, I went on the app called "SketchNation" and got to choose what type of game I wanted to make. Also, I got to design my own character and the background! I made mine a jumping game! In the end, I made a game where you had to make a cat jump on clouds in the sky and try not to fall. Even though cats in the sky make no sense what so ever, it was still an understandable and successful game. Unfortunately, the app had some technical difficulties and would not let me share my game to my teacher. I think I deserved all 20 points for the game, and it wasn't my fault that I was unable to share it.
Second, I worked on making my own eBook. Using the iPad app "Book Creator", I made my own book on giraffes. I included all the essential parts of a book, including a cover, title page, table of contents, and the actual information on giraffes! I was halfway done with my book when it was the end of the period! Before I left I made a blog post about my completion of the game and the progress I made on the eBook. The next class, I spent the whole period working on my eBook. It was 17 pages and included all useful and correct information on giraffes and also had many pictures. I was very proud with my eBook when it was completed. I think I deserved all 30 points for it, because I spent a lot of time and effort on it. Next, I made a blog post about my eBook and called it a day!
Fourth, I worked on an animation for my last class I had to work on this project! Using Flash, I made a short animation that told the story of Humpty Dumpty. I used many layers and frames and made sure everything was going smoothly. I also had shape and motion tweens here and there. To top it all off, after I was finished, I went to Free Play Music
and download some free music to put on my animation. My animation was finally finished and I was proud, even though there was the occasional mistake here and there. I think I deserve all of the 20 points for all the effort I out into this animation. I ended this class with yet another blog post explaining my completion of the coding and the animation.
In conclusion, I spent a lot of time and effort on this project. With all the assignments I did plus the blog posts, I think I earned 120 points. That's pretty good seeing as how you needed to earn at least 90! I know not everything was perfectly done, but I think it was good enough.
