In­sights in the cour­se of stu­dy on­line media

My name is The­re­sa and I star­ted my dual stu­dies at TecAlliance in Sep­tem­ber in the re­alm of on­line media. This cour­se was of­fe­red for the first time by TecAlliance in Oc­to­ber 2019. For the theo­ry pha­se, I move every few mon­ths from Wei­kers­heim to Mos­bach. I am cur­r­ent­ly in my se­cond se­mes­ter and have sur­vi­ved my se­cond theo­re­ti­cal pha­se at DHBW.
All in all, I have cour­ses about de­sign as well as com­pu­ter sci­ence. This in­clu­des the ba­sic know­ledge of pro­gramming with Java and web­site buil­ding (HTML, CSS, Ja­va­Script, etc.). Very in­te­res­ting were the lec­tures about Web Usa­bi­li­ty, which also dealt with psy­cho­lo­gi­cal aspects of a web­site. In the se­cond se­mes­ter the cour­se Sta­tis­tics brings even more va­rie­ty. This cour­se was par­ti­cu­lar­ly com­pre­hen­si­ble due to its prac­ti­cal re­le­van­ce and the fo­cus on web ana­ly­tics sys­tems. The cour­se of stu­dies does not only in­clu­de theo­re­ti­cal lear­ning, but also a lot of pro­ject and group work. By working in a com­mu­ni­ty it is up to each stu­dent to spe­cia­li­ze in a cer­tain area and to deepen their own know­ledge. This se­mes­ter a group task was to build a pic­tu­re gal­le­ry like “Unsplash” with the help of a CMS (Con­tent-Ma­nage­ment-Sys­tem, in this case Dru­pal). In my cour­se of stu­dies the­re are not so many clas­si­cal ex­ami­na­ti­on achie­ve­ments in the form of ex­ams but fre­quent­ly gra­ded pro­jects. A lar­ger pro­ject, which is co­m­ing Here it will be our task (again in groups) to pro­du­ce a do­cu­men­ta­ry film about a per­son from the Mos­bach area with an ex­ci­ting life story.
In the prac­ti­cal pha­ses, I can part­ly put my lear­ned know­ledge into prac­ti­ce, for ex­amp­le in film pro­jects, the re­de­sign of the blog or also in the crea­ti­on of new e‑learning cour­ses, which will be the sub­ject of my first pro­ject work. I will part­ly wri­te this pro­ject work at our lo­ca­ti­on in Co­lo­gne, which is also a gre­at op­por­tu­ni­ty to see so­me­thing dif­fe­rent and to ex­plo­re a new city.
All in all, I like the con­tent of my stu­dies very much, be­cau­se they en­ab­le me to im­ple­ment many in­te­res­ting things that are also very re­le­vant and in de­mand to­day. Ne­vertheless, the­re are also down­si­des to my stu­dies, sin­ce so many dif­fe­rent are­as are to be co­ve­r­ed (mar­ke­ting, pro­ject ma­nage­ment, de­sign, psy­cho­lo­gy, com­pu­ter sci­ence and tech­no­lo­gy), I have a rough un­der­stan­ding of the to­pics, but I do not feel that I am a “pro­fes­sio­nal” in one of the­se areas.
