Week 4 Reflection: Professionalism & RISE Self-Evaluation

This is my RISE Self Evaluation for this course. I will talk through some of the points that I mentioned in the video:

  • Reflect – I started this course with a mindset that I know some of the basics. As it turned out, I had no idea and I learned a lot. For some assignments I could do much better, but I was not that focus oriented and there were details I missed. But my instructor was very patient with me and helped me get through them.
  • Inquire – There were some surprising areas for me. Like for Portfolio, I thought having a LinkedIn account would be enough. As it turned out, it takes lots of work and focus to do a good job. I will definitely focus on this and make myself familiarize with more details and how to change the layout and templates.
  • Suggest – I wish I could do more on making a good portfolio. This was a real new task for me and I had no experience with any of the websites or services.
  • Elevate – I will take all these points in consideration. Specially two things stuck with me in this course: Paying attention to details and Consistency.

Week 4 Reflection: Project Revision

Here is the new website with new looks and many revisions:


Here are some Before shots – which are horrible, I admit. I totally got the idea wrong and had some text and pictures which was not really takes from the shared folder.

In the revision I have made, all the unrelated pictures are gone. Pages are updated with no deadly sin – no link to words like “here”. One page added to show a picture gallery of what to expect. All the necessary and key information is on front page with hyperlinks to follow. At the bottom of page all the menu and two testimonials added, the map and address has been corrected. I wanted to add each testimonial to every page but wordpress did not allow me to do so. It still needs lots of work but at least now it is related, consistent and coherent.

Here are the after pictures:
