I found Week 13 to be a very useful and helpful week. I liked being able to work on my project with Tim nearby if I had problems or questions.
One of my aims to going to the drop-in session was to see if my laptop would work properly with the UC-Student Wi-Fi as opposed to its severe lack of speed with my own internet at Cooper Lodge. Unfortunately, this was not the case. It turned out to be just as slow and as fond of ‘Not Responding’. So it still took annoying lengths of time to get anything done.
In the classroom I attempted to embed a video off Youtube – something I hadn’t done for about a year. I thought I knew what I was doing, but turns out forgot you have to select the HTML box in order for it to embed the video and not just display the embedding link.
I then encountered problems with embedding a map I created with Google onto the same page as an embedded Youtube video. If I hadn’t gone into the drop-in session, I never would have known how to fix it, nor would I have known the best way to link articles from Trove.
