The Online publishing lecture started with an overview and importance of online media in today’s age. Guidance on the importance of establishing internet presence and instructions of how to effect this was provided.
The lecture also included a general discussion about the web and its importance as a contemporary medium of information. We discussed the challenges involved in using the web and the expectations of the users.
Search engines also formed part of the lecture. How to effectively maximise their use to a publisher’s advantage was explained.
Finally, creating private blogs using Blogger platform was demonstrated and we were encouraged to set up our personal blogs on this platform.
Despite initial teething problems in setting up my personal blog, finally being able to write it made for a good first lecture.
