What are three tips a student can use to write their college admissions essay?
1) Focus and narrow your subject by selecting one real, heartfelt example that had an impact on the student. 2) Add in personality to the writing, rather than having an essay feel chronological or like a list of accomplishments. 3) Similar to writing a short story, have each essay structured with a beginning, middle and end.
Subject: Digital Media
When editing a video for the web, many companies choose to have a rough cut between clips, which means the clips automatically jump from scene to scene. In some circumstances, video clips should show a passage of time, cross fade or have other effects to create a natural flow. What are these effects called in video editing software such as Adobe Premiere Pro or iMovie?
Videos can utilize "transitions" to create a smooth flow between clips.
When creating a website, all written content such as blog posts or articles should be written with SEO in mind. What does SEO stand for, and how can it be applied in a blog post with an accompanying photo?
SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. SEO can be applied by using keywords throughout the website while creating original, organic content. In order for photos to register as valuable content on a webpage, all images should be properly titled and tagged with alt-text.
