last homework(opinion)

1) i learnt a lot of things that are helping me in writing research papers, i learnt how to cite different types of documents, i learnt how to choose which database to search on and i learnt to differntiate between popular and academic sources and also how to cite videos/films and website which i have not known how to cite before.

2)i think that all the topics we have covered so far are simple but very important to know about so i dont have any problems with any of those topics.

3) i liked blogging because its easy and i can look back at my work and maybe edit it before the deadline, also i have never blogged before so it was nice to have a blog page and posts through this course.

4) i like the idea of blogging but i didnt like how the webpage of wordpress looks like, i think the should update how it looks so it would be more fun, and also more variety of colours and designs.

5) i think that this course is very useful, as i used what i learnt in it in many other classes and it showed me how to cite and research properly.

Thank you,

Engy Hassanein
