Responding to your work – Part Two!

Life of a Uni Student

Again, I have been given the opportunity to peer review some of my fellow students work. The task is to create a Digital Artefact about a concept, and how it will change or influence the future.

Comment 1: Cybernetic Church – Ethan Jack Crawshaw

Ethan’s Digital Artefact, Soul Revival Church Online, is an outlet where followers are still able to practice their faith within the restrains of their own home. They have set up a number of platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Podcasts and Youtube, to allow easy access for followers. Ethan expressed that he would see a decrease in viewership as the live-stream progressed, so I provided links to websites that explain why he is losing viewership, as well as suggest some solutions to this issue. I believe Ethan’s DA is on track, and clearly relates to how society have been forced to progress towards using…

Peer-Review_’BETA-Pitch-Comments’ As1 Pt2 Bp3



Another great DA idea, so I had to share my compliments on her work, as I mentioned in the comment there was no link to direct us to her DA. This had led me without access to her work, making it a lot harder to talk about it, although she did share screen shots in her BETA presentation. 

She also states that she didn’t receive any feed-back on her prior pitch video, I let her know that I’ve experienced the same thing and that she should at least have one comment from her tutor, besides this, I also gave her advice and responded to her idea to increase the audience interactions via promptly posting

 I had given Issac another voice to reassure him that his DA is looking good, I was envious of his idea of using twitch as way to get a feedback loop, Although…

Beta Presentation Comments

Benny's Online Hovel

Hey guys, this post is for my peer commentary for our Digital Artefact Beta Pitch. In this post I will be briefly reflecting on what DA I commented on, what I suggested, the information I provided and how it relates to the lecture, I will then finish up by commenting on how I think I performed with my feedback to my peers.

First up is Emma’s pitch on her projectAdonis. Adonis was a pitch I commented in the last round of the assessment and I was happy to see that my feedback had been taken on and helped improve Adonis. Adonis is an application in which people will be able to directly stream games from. In my comment this round I suggested that Emma looked into how the gaming industry will evolve in the future, and how mobile gaming over the last years has risen in popularity and…

D.A Beta Peer Feedback

Following the original round of feedback from the D.A pitches, I have found this part of the BCM325 assessment process very helpful. Not only have i really enjoyed being able to see what my peers are doing and be able to help them. But to also myself receive feedback on my project that I never would have thought about originally.

My first comment was for Nicole who was covering how VR and AR are being used/can be used in the fashion industry. It was clear that she had received some feedback on her original video and had used this to her advantage. The video was clearly presented and she spoke with a clear interest on the topic.
My comment mainly just went off the feedback that she had already received as it was great. I agreed with the importance of needing to upload they key concepts that are being covered.
The link I provided was how VR and AR are currently being used within the COVID-19 pandemic in regards to the fashion industry. Thought this might be an interesting topic to touch on since its so current and relevant.

My second comment was for Emma and her podcast on the topic of sex/women empowerment. I originally commented on her original pitch video, so it was great to see how far the podcast had progressed. Emma made it clear that there were a few hiccups that she encountered along the way, but was able to fix it for her next podcast.
Emma mentioned that her podcast was being listened too and receiving some constructive feedback from its listeners. The feedback I gave her was to perhaps incorporate a transcript for the listeners to be able to follow along with.
The link I shared was how the current pandemic has increased the amount of podcast listeners and how this is great for her medium. Might help her reach a greater audience during this uncertain time.

My last comment was for Jess, and her D.A idea I found very interesting, the future of storytelling. From her Beta video, it was obvious that she had taken on board any feedback that she had received from her first video, which enabled her to change her idea. I didn’t provide much feedback as it was clear her DA was taking a new direction and she was already working through the previous feedback that she had received. Her topic wasn’t something that I was familiar with, therefore I watched the linked video as a way to understand her topic. I shared it with her to showcase what other people were creating/ exploring in regards to the topic.

Again, I really enjoyed the opportunity of being able to provide my peers with feedback in such a positive form. I have found that everyone is so encouraging yet understanding that this pandemic has everyone a little lost.

Beta Commentary

By Jessica McVicar

For my beta commentary assignment for BCM325, we needed to offer feedback to 3 of our peer’s beta posts. By doing so, I was able to assist in the development of their ideas along with gain new ideas for my own DA assignment.

The three reviews I conducted included:

Space Future

Brief Description: Samuel’s DA concept is based around the idea of the future of space and space exploration. He began the iteration of his DA on youtube but decided to start utilising TikTok as well. This decision was based on feedback he received from his pitch video. Samuel found that TikTok worked well with his DA as it fits into the SMART concept.

Reflection: For Samuel’s comment I focused on discussing the benefit of integrating mediums to reach a wider audience. With this, I…

Providing Project Report Feedback & an Evaluation – BCM325

Media, Stories and Thoughts

This blog post was written as part of BCM 325 – Future Cultures, as studied as part of my Digital & Social Media major at the University of Wollongong.

Context for those who might not be studying BCM325, we are each undertaking a project with a central focus on “the future”. We have now provided a progress report on these projects (here is mine), and are now providing feedback on three other student’s reports, and evaluating that feedback.

Project One: The Future of Care Work

Short Summary:

Alana is creating a short series of podcasts and a website to embed in the podcasts alongside their transcripts. Her project is focusing on how the care work industry may shift and change with developments in technology. You can find Alana’s progress report here.

My Feedback:

Hi Alana! Your DA sounds interesting and it’s a really important topic!…
