Transcript More Web Technologies Media students learn valuable life lessons and more about media ethics Taping leaves on a tree! Students in Web Technologies III discuss how the web site should be tweaked to make it easier to navigate. Students learned many aspects of the web, group work and deadline skills in the class, -photo by Erin Nagy The School of Communications had a special problems class in its curriculum during the spring semester. Advanced Web Design, a course developed by Dr. David Donnelly, was a computer intensive class that allowed students to work together to create a web page that would be used by college students as a media research and reference site. This semester's project dealt with media ethics and the responsibilities of the media to accurately portray our society. "I was able to learn a lot about media ethics from the research I did in this class," said senior media production major Michael Brimms. Students enrolled in the class developed their web design and group work skills in Information and the Web, and Web Technologies II, which were prerequisites. "I think so far the most educational part of this class for me was learning how to work with people in a group nobody-decides-till- we-all-agree situation,'" said junior interpersonal communications major Jenny Tenneberger. Computer know-how and an eye for design and layout were not the only things required of the eight people in the class. They also had to be able to work together effectively and rely on each other for feedback. -Erin Nagy This campaign will be the best! PR students await their group leader so they can discuss the presentation of their campaign. The Campaigns class gave students the opportunity to compete against one another, sharpening their skills, -photo by Erin Nagy Advertising and PR Campaigns Two classes plunge into business practice by creating real campaigns Waiting... Students in the Advertising Campaigns class wait for one of the groups to present their part of the whole campaign. Students broke up into teams to do one part of the advertising so that the work load was focused for the people within the groups. -Photo by Erin Nagy Wow! That is so great. One group in the PR campaigns class listens to see what the due dates for their presentations are. Students had to present their final campaign to the class for comparison, and for the final grade, -photo by Erin Nagy Students in both public relations and advertising were able to gain hands- on experience in campaigns classes. Both concentrations gave the students the assignment of assembling a campaign based on what they learned in their classes. Professor Jay Mower's advertising students received hands-on experience with a campaign for Banc of America, Bank of America's investment services. "It is a great experience because there are a lot of ideas throughout the course (COMM 4361) and the students create special advertisements," he said. Every year the campaigns were unique: from cars to the Red Cross to selling Hallmark cards across the country. Last year there was a different perspective to the advertising campaign because a specific part of Banc of America Co., was being promoted. The Advertising Campaigns class applied the creative, media, and strategic advertising principles to the campaign which where learned in the fall semester of 2001. The students wanted to make people aware of the investment services the company had to offer, such as getting advised by investments counselors. "At first we all started out not liking it," said Mower. "Metaphorically speaking, the class is like the New England Patriots, the 2002 Super Bowl champions. They come out as a team and won as team and that is what the class is doing." There were three main groups: the creative media group, promotions and public relations. Each group was assigned different tasks. Employers recognized this opportunity as a positive experience and students were considered more employable especially since they competed nationally. Advertising wasn't the only communications class that competed for a great campaign. The Public Relations Campaign class also competed amoungst themselves to develep a campaign. The students in the class were to come up with a workable and seemingly successful campaign for the for Eastwood Health Clinic. "I really feel like Campaigns has taught me how to be the best I can be as far as promoting people and businesses," said senior public relations major Erin Nagy. Students gained valuable experience through thei research. Also, the networking connections they forged helped them with possible job opportunities. The group-oriented nature of the class resulted in occasional conflicts between passionate people, but all in all, it was an enjoyable and valuable learning experience. -Jackie Gil 104} Acal cacleniics sing anc campaigns 05/
