Three Comments for Beta Presentations

Amanda Tait comment

Starting off with what I think is my best comment is on Amanda’s digital artefact on 3D printing to restore the coral reefs. Amanda looks to research how 3D printing can be useful to help restore the coral reefs. She has 3 different blog ideas that all connect in an interesting way.  I’ve also noticed her posts on twitter about how here project is going along but also noticed that these posts aren’t getting much traction. In order to help get more engagement, I’ve suggested using Instagram. Even though Instagram is usually viewed perhaps not the best platform for some digital artefacts, I’ve encouraged Amanda to look to using this one as a way to propel an audience towards her blogs, since it can be hard for some to find a way to get people to view their WordPress. This comment was the one where I’ve linked the most links in, mostly suggesting tips and tricks for posting on an Instagram blog, especially for non-profits since I think Amanda’s DA is very similar as well as why engagement is useful on Instagram.

My second comment, which wasn’t my best, but I also don’t think it was my worst was on Taani’s Digital Artefact. Taani looks to advocate strong famous women in different careers who may have faced oppression to get to where they are. This is an interesting Digital Artefact but since I couldn’t think of a lot of things to suggest it ended up being one of my shorter and perhaps more unhelpful of my three comments. I ended up linking articles as to why it is important to keep up engagement on Instagram since this is the one platform she is using. I perhaps could have suggested using more platforms such as WordPress or Twitter to further her ability to talk about these women but at the time I did not think of that.

Lastly looking at probably my worst comment of the three. Lachlan wants to create 4 videos matching the seasons relating to the different parts of an empire and then comparing it towards our present. I think this is the most unique Digital Artefact I’ve come across but also perhaps the most confusing. I didn’t know exactly what to suggest for Lachlan so really just suggested more ways he could promote his videos to people outside of the BCM subject. Since he made no mention of promoting it to anyone either in the BCM subject or outside Especially since other engagement besides this subject would be useful for reiteration in his last videos. I suggested Reddit since it’s the platform that is probably the most relatable for his digital artefact, I also tried to suggest a link with some tips for easily promoting Youtube videos.

 

 

 

DA Pitch Review & Feedback

My first comment was on ‘People Help the People’ by Rebecca Fuller whose DA was about creating a community for women to contact while feeling unsafe while walking home. She has found that women generally tend to feel unsafe while walking home, and she wants to create a public website or an app to join women together to other women they can talk to if they feel unsafe while walking alone, that has emergency services, location services, an opportunity to ring an alarm an opportunity for women to talk about what they want to change in the future.

I think my comment found here was one of my more useful and helpful ones. I tried to suggest about how she could begin her DA as a facebook group and then integrate it to a website or app in the future since it would be a ton easier than trying to separate out who is a male or female on a website or an app. I suggested integrating the safe zone app as well which might help her, I have never used this app so I don’t actually know how well it works so I couldn’t give advice on that, but it seems similar to what she wants to create. I sadly could only provide one link but I didn’t know what else to mention.

For my second comment, I was reviewing Katrina’s DA ‘Don’t Get Me Started’ which would be a podcast where her and her friends and other people who want to be on the podcast would be venting about their frustrations and offering support. It would be once or twice a week through Skype and uploaded to Soundcloud or Spotify either raw or edited. She wants to provide a place for peer support and to help people vent.

I tried not to be too harsh on this comment, I tried to suggest helpful critiques and suggestions to perhaps make her podcast a bit more organised by knowing what topic each week was going to be about, suggesting that right now if it was general venting, it might get a bit tough to edit. I definitely used way too many ‘perhaps’s’ and ‘maybe’s’, which I shouldn’t have to make it more to point.

I wanted to suggest helpful things to use in her DA. I suggested using Discord instead of Skype since I have had experience with both and like Discord much better and provided a link to that. I also suggested that using Soundcloud would be easier to get her podcast on since I found a link that showed how hard it might be to get a podcast on Spotify.

My last comment was reviewing Kiana’s DA of her Youtube channel which is a continuation from one of her previous DA’s which is a Youtube channel, she posts content of what she likes doing, funny things or things she finds funny or basically anything she enjoys, it is very easy DA but comes across complications while editing her videos since she finds it boring.

I think this was one of my worst comments. I tried to be helpful in the beginning but not knowing what editing software she was using might have eliminated that. I suggested Wondershare which is a video editing software I heavily rely on.

My last bit to my commenting was by far the worst out of all the comments. Kiana mentioned that she could see Youtube doing educational streams for schools in the future, so I suggested a similar article that showed how people are already live streaming educational streams on Youtube’s main competitor, Twitch. My last bit of commenting didn’t help her DA at all but I also didn’t know how to suggest any more that could help her DA, which maybe I should just leave out in the future.
