Creating my DA for BCM325 has been interesting so far. First of all, lets begin by revisiting my initial DA topic. I was exploring Artificial Intelligence in our society through blog posts on my WordPress website. However, I found that exploring media such as film and games, was not engaging to readers or myself. I wanted to try the use of a TikTok account.
TikTok has always had a significant potential for ‘trending’ videos and seems to grow every day. The whole idea behind TikTok however, is to keep the content short to that audiences do not have to pay attention for longer than 1 minute – even then, it’s a blessing to have someone stay engaged with a video for more than 30 seconds. So, I also found it difficult to create content that was engaging, yet also that explored my topic in an in depth manner. Therefore, I lost a lot of content that should have been put in my videos eg. I struggled to link it back to our course content and theories.
Moving forward, I believe I need to be engaging with an audience more and attempting to gain an audience also. Possibly promoting my videos or engaging with similar accounts? But more importantly, I need to make more engaging content and connect my work with our course content.
