The Web Style Guide Review

After reviewing The Web Style Guide, I learned that:

  1. Sitemaps are an interactive way to organize your website. Before you start making your website, a sitemap is an excellent way to visually see how your website will look like. You can organize all the components of your website, and ensure you’ve got everything down.
  2. You shouldn’t overcrowd your pages. Although it may seem logical to enhance the content of your page, you shouldn’t make the page difficult for the user to use. Try not to put pictures or other media that might take away attention from the actual content of your page.

Web Style Guide Tips

  1.  Try using Dreamweaver when designing your web site. You can use Dreamweaver as a Web authorizing tool. Through the site you can create and test web pages on your own.
  2. You should keep the CRAAP test in mind when designing and creating your homepage. You definitely want to ensure that other people visiting your site will find it easy-to-use and simple.
  3. Make sure that you design a sitemap before going out and designing your website. To ensure that your website is exactly how you want it, create a sitemap. This will act as a blueprint for your entire website. It will allow you to see everything that you want included in your website, and in what order they need to be in.

GSU Career Center

The most helpful resource on GSU career center is definitely the Panther Career Net (PCN). This service is available for any Georgia State student. Basically, the site allows you to upload your resume and apply for jobs on and off campus. This is a great resource for all students! Another plus side to this site is that its online, so you can use it any day at any time – great for students with hectic schedules. The site is also very user-friendly and easy to use. The only thing that you have to do outside of your computer is get your resume approved, but after that you’re all set. I believe Panther Career Net is a very valuable resource and should be taken advantage of by any GSU student.

Acadia University Tutorial Review

I think Acadia University’s tutorial was an interactive way for students to learn about plagiarism. Plagiarism, especially in today’s day in age, is extremely easy to fall victim to. The easiest way to find information is through the internet. It is especially easy to just copy and paste things written by other people and make it your own. However, through Acadia University’s tutorial, we learn how to properly cite things that are not your own. They especially made it clear the repercussions of plagiarizing. Through the tutorial, we learned that plagiarizing can even lead to being kicked out of a university. I feel like overall Acadia University made a very comprehendible presentation to show students the rights and wrongs of using citations.

Netiquette Challenge

One fact I learned from completing the Netiquette Challenge is that threatening people, even through the internet, was illegal. I knew it would be illegal in person, but it’s actually pretty surprising for it to be illegal online too. Looking through social media, you might read people arguing back and forth and threatening each other, who knew that would be illegal. Also, the netiquette challenge stated that anything illegal on the street is also illegal in real life. This is a very interesting fact to have in mind.

Helpful Apps for College Students

  1. GroupMe: GroupMe is a very useful tool for college students. Basically, you create a group message with people without having to give out your phone number to people you don’t know all too well. Through GroupMe, you can attach links, pictures, and other content instantly. This app is very useful when you have a group assignment, or if you just want to get in touch with people from your class.
  2. Quizlet: Quizlet is a life savor when it comes to studying. Through the app, you can browse a “stack” of flashcards, or even create them on your own. What’s great about this app is that you can take your flashcards on the go wherever you are. Through the app, you just take a little time to create your flashcards, and study them in a variety of ways. Quizlet definitely makes studying a lot more efficient and easy.
