EL 405: Blog Portfolio II...

This is the second installment of my Blog Portfolio for 2006 Fall Semester: EL 405 New Media Projects. For those of you that did not follow my Blog the prior to now I will give you a brief exposition about me. My name is Leslie Rodriguez and welcome to my weblog sponsored by Movable Type. I am a junior at Seton Hill University and as part of my class and the New Media Journalism program I write and respond with blog entries on various topics.

These entries are then posted for public view on my blog. This entry acts as an introduction to my blog portfolio which includes selected entries that reflect on our in class discussions, published news articles and various texts that Dr.Jerz has assigned. The following topics will be examined and discussed in my blog portfolio:

The Collection
My best blog entries that demonstrate intellectual growth.
Entries are categorized accordingly.

Catholic Social Teaching: Project I

Project I Proposal - In this entry I proposed my original idea of making the CST project a children's game and using TGF2. I had wanted graphics at first and express that here.

CST Pre-Research - This is basically an entry that shows the pre-research that I did before working on the game. I decided to post the 7 themes of CST that I found online in hopes that it would benefit my classmates.

CST Pre-game Outline - This entry features a hand drawn map of the game that I decided to create using interactive fiction. I found this to be very useful when designing the game.

CST Progress Report I - A screenshot of my progress after creating the setup for the game. Here I also note my plans to add on to the game in the future with more rooms, that are not displayed in the shot.

Ex 4: Flash Slideshow
Progress Report I - This entry expresses my thoughts on learning flash and how I found it rather difficult at some points. A screenshot here shows the first layout I was going to use when tinkering around with the program.

Progress Report II - At this point in the slideshow production process, I decided that I was going to change my layout, and displayed the new one in two screenshots. I also added buttons and decided to try and edit an MP3.

Mp3/Audio Editing - An entry that chronicals the adventure I had using Audacity to edit the Rob Zombie file that I used in my slideshow. It explains spliting mp3s and emphasizes the usefullness of this program.

Catholic Social Teaching Continued: Project II
Project II Proposal - I decided to change the idea that I had for Project II and in this blog entry I explained my new idea. This entry shows how Stormy and I were going to work together...but independently.

The Comment Primo - A suggestion to Stormy about making her slideshow in Flash more interactive by adding motions/transitions between the photos.

The Comment Grande - I commented on Karissa's blog entry that featured her completed CST project. I posted my thoughts about it, as well as suggestions for the future.

The Comment Informative - A series of comments left on my blog about Audacity. I responded to a question Amanda presented about file conversions.

The Link Gracious - In this entry I refered to an entry that Stormy had posted earlier in the day. I also told how this related to the entry I was posting. There is also a link to Puff's blog here.

Wild Card
Guitar Goddess - This is an entry that features a picture of Stormy Knight going wild at GameStop as she played the new Guitar Hero game. Awesome day, awesome comments, enough said.

Bottoms Up Peter...Advice From Darby - A screen capture of the e-mail that Darby and I exchanged that talked about posting a game online and the software needed to do so.
