The game incorporates information about the platform into gameplay to make the player feel involved in what they are learning about.

“Adobe InDesign Platform Study”
Introduction to Digital Humanities
Professor Jim Brown
This project is a platform study of Adobe InDesign. Since InDesign is used to design publications, it seemed fitting to use the program and present my report in the form of a book. The study discusses the history of Adobe, publication softwares, as well as design itself in an effort to examine the effect and usefulness of InDesign.

“Looking Out from the Inside”
Iterative Digital Storytelling
Professor Robert Emmons
Looking Out from the Inside is an interactive story that chronicles my struggle to cope with the life’s finitude and my own personal transience. The emotions and insights presented within the story have powerfully impacted me and my search for meaning. I hope whoever plays can relate to or learn from my experience.

“The Graphics Interchange Format (GIF)”
Introduction to Digital Humanities
Professor Jim Brown
I created a website to include all of the aspects that I thought were important to the GIF’s creation and legacy, which were a timeline and a Prezi presentation that highlights the main aspects of the format. The timeline shows how the GIF began and how it changed through time, along with the future prospects for the format. Because there were some parts of the GIF’s background that would not fit into a specific time frame, I decided to create a Prezi to emphasize the other important characteristics of the GIF, which includes the different uses and the code that goes into it.
