My Digital Artefact for BCM325 has gone through not just changes this semester but been completely reborn since the pitch assignment. My Digital Artefact changed from a Podcast with a changing topic each week, to a Blog dedicated to interviewing and blogging student and industry profiles, sharing stories and wisdom from current students and industry professionals. The blog/website was set up through WordPress, separate from my BCM blog. The name of the Blog is ‘Where is the future taking you?’ it has been available publicly available all through its development, I currently have one university profile Available for public viewing. I’ve drafted a following three more, and In the next few days they should be live on the page. When working towards my social utility for this project, I thought back to the time I spent over summer in my hometown Broken hill, during this time I had teenagers and their parents openly approaching to interview me for a real interview about what UNI was like and my experience there. From this experience, I decided to take profiles from my peers, friends and family on their experience at Uni, both Social and Academic sides. These profiles act as a place for students coming to university to take in a real and honest view from a different student not bound to the uni.
The goal for this blog series of profiles is to have 10-13 profiles done and 2-4 industry profiles, these are a little harder to organise with my schedule. As the semester goes on the project will have the audio added as a part of the blog, as I still really love the idea of having people listen to the conversation. Through the feedback form this assignment I’m hoping to expand or shorten my interview and change some questions around for future interviews and blog posts.
As I say in my video that is above I feel this blog could become an invaluable resource to teachers and students alike, as students cant often go into their full Uni experience of how they met their friends, etc. Also from a business standpoint I feel this could be valuable to the uni as they’re trying to get more and more student to help with the covid 19 recovery plan.
