As we conclude this arduous semester called Spring 2011, I have only a bitter sweet feeling about this module.
I first thought that the content of this module would be boring, but after I sat through various lessons, starting with Social Media, i was pleased to know so much more about the Internet.
Initially, I felt that what i knew about the internet was adequate and sufficient, but after this module, i felt as though what i know about the internet is like a drop in the ocean.
for one thing, i never really realized the true power of Google and its various applications/functions, such as google RSS feeds, and the Google search codes (and/or/not)
Furthermore, I was intrigued by Steve Jobs’ keynote speeches for his iphone/ipad/apple/ipod launches.
how about the revered President of Social Media, Barack Obama? He won his way into presidency through viral marketing campaigns on social media.
or the use of Second Life to actually purchase clothes (Armani Exchange & Gap Jeans anyone?)
as well as the idea of e-learning and how it affects our education routes.
in conclusion, i’m happy to have taken COM125, especially under Mr Abel Choy. It was and still is a joy to take both CSE111 and COM125 under him in Fall’09 and Spring’11 respectively. Do hope to take another module with him as well as my awesome class. Till then, see you guys when I see you!
