BCM215 Peer Commentary Analysis
This time around I decided to focus my commentary on one project, Cassie and Tori’s Simp’s podcast. I looked at Tori’s pitch earlier in the semester and wanted to check in on how the project was going. I feel that this time the commentary was a bit more relaxed – because they are further along in their project, I was able to see all the changes and how the project has grown and changed.
For the first part of my comment, I wanted to focus on all of the positives, and everything that has been improved on since the pitch and hype up their project because I had some analytical commentary afterwards. I personally prefer softening the blow by exploring all the positives before moving on to areas that could be improved on.
Next, I focused on the technical aspects of the subject – the analytical framework that is the basis of the project. I think my comment here was helpful, especially since later I go on to give some tips and will allow Cassie to further narrow her framework. I may have been able to improve my comment if I’d viewed the podcast she mentioned, but I haven’t had the chance to do so yet – so that’s something to think about in the future. I also wanted to let her know that (for me at least) her audio was a bit soft, especially since I had trouble with my audio earlier on in the semester.
Finally, I wanted to give some more in-depth tips for improvement. Trying to keep to the type of content Cassie is already working on rather than give broader suggestions that could take away from the project. I will note that this time around I didn’t provide any links to direct examples, so this is something I could work on in the future.
I’ve tended to stick to a pretty similar style of commentary in the past and think that this style works the best for allowing me to get all of my thoughts out coherently.
