Wrapping up

I’m done with exhibition day!

Leading up to the exhibition day, I was feeling very overwhelmed that I had to explain and answer hard questions about my concept and approach. I was afraid that users might react very negatively towards my idea, but I think this was just my anxiety acting up. Reflecting on this past week, I was very happy with the outcome of my prototype and the overall experience of having this course being offered online. Initially, I was dreading having online courses, and the fact that my entire group dropped the course in week 5 was very demotivating. Despite contemplating on dropping the course, I’m happy that I didn’t and that I pushed through despite being very stressed about joining a new group at such a late stage. I was very blessed to have found a group that was exploring a similar problem space which made it very easy for me to assimilate myself into this new context. A huge plus that my new team was super friendly! We had an enjoyable time every week not only discussing course content but also chatting about really random stuff.

After the exhibition we had our final discord call as a team to discuss the form of our team reflective report, outlining what we wanted to write about as a team, going off individually to word out individual sections before coming back together to integrate each component together. Surprisingly, we finished up the report relatively quick meaning that well have a full break on Friday to relax!

To the teaching team, thank you so much for all your hard work and support throughout the entire semester! Replying to slack messages 24/7, helping with very last min technical issues, having to speak to an entire class without response, and having a podcast with very few students isn’t easy! So, thank you so much for making the transition to online learning as smooth as it was. I rate this course 11/10 😊
