Alhamdulillah. Here am I again after go through a very hectic week. It is week 11 already. Times were running so fast and I looks like lost my 24 hours. Ya Allah, make me strong so that I can manage all the challenges in this semester.
As for this class, Kak Ana emphasize us on how to do a good individual reflection as we are not in the right track. According to Kak Ana, our reflection do not achieve the target set by this course and if we didn’t change the way of doing it, we will lost our marks for it. She also showed to us the reflections did by our seniors and it’s kind of having a big problem. Their reflections and mine were big different. I am only reflect back what have I learn in the class without relate it to the real situation. I’m just write back what I already learn that day without knowing it uses. Add on by Mr. Helmi, there were five stages in doing our reflection which are reporting, responding, relating, reasoning and reconstructing. As for now, I’m promised to myself to improve my reflections in a few coming weeks so that I can try to have a good marks too. Do guide me if I;m doing something wrong. It’s a kind of learning if we did a mistakes..^_^
Done with the reflection session, we move on a suprised news. First, we’ve been told to do a poster relating to our video. It’s kind of having a poster same like a film nowadays and I felt excited with it. Apart from the excited feeling, I am quite worried because that’s mean our work are not finished yet. Then, we are told that there will be an EduTechnovation Day on the last week. What a suprised to me. I thought that we will present our video same like before but it was wrong. We are having a big day during the presentation of the final video. In the other hand, during this event, others lecturers and the dean will be invite. I am imagine that I’m gonna to present my work in front of many VIPs on that day.
On that day, we are going to present the video and also explain to them the objectives and purpose of creating that video. Apart from that, the poster that we need to create will be paste around the lab so that it will be more merrier. I could imagine how glamourous that day.
After all of the news, we moving on to learn how to create the poster. Mr.Helmi are the one who conducted the learning process help by Mr.Fuad and Kak Ana. We learn again to use Adobe Photoshop. This is what I’ve learn :

What a big tough for me as I am a person who do not like creative job. Alhamdulillah since Mr.Fuad and Kak Ana always get in touch with me and they guide me so that I’m on the right track so far. Finally, I already know how to create my poster later on butg I need to mingle with it more.
Hopefully from today’s class, I can apply my new knowledge in producing our video poster instead of my own preparation in the future if I’ve been asked to create another one..
NOTE : We met up at Kolej Keris Mas on 27 and 28 december around 8.30 pm to record the scene and have some discussion related to the video.
Thank Ya Allah for giving me such a wonderful moment to remember and the chances to develop my inner skill.
Until we meet again next week..!!
