4. Problems We Had To Overcome
Difficulty in time: When webpage contest started as the MID-TERM approached, the students were really going at their studies, but four of us had to spend a lot of time to prepare for contest. Thanked to teacher Tao to help us communicate with teachers of various subjects, who accepted that we were supposed to be excellent as soon as we got contest done. We never have been Yuntai Mountain before, in this short span of 10 more days, we field visited to Yuntai, depth interviews were adopted to gather data, and accessed to an enormous amount of information, finally, we sorted through a set of integral materials. Difficulties in interview: We had to take advantage of after-class time to conduct interviews that was fairly far away from school, so we said thanks to teacher Tao to take us to interview many times, and we got enough material. Technical difficulties: Most of our teammates were novices in making web pages, so it was quite frustration for us to lay out the webpage. Thanks to teacher Liao, she gave step-by-step directions for teaching us to make webpage, to edit image with Photoshop. In the process of the late creation, they were always our strong technical support until we finally completed the task.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
Now Yuntaiguan can not remain without our protection, we should keep the past scenarios so that the name of Yuntaiguan will never leave our life, let it enrich our life. The flowers and trees in Yuntaiguan need to be respected and cared, two bodhi trees in Yuntaiguan attaches countless wishes and marriage. Because the people believe it, so they give it infinite love and confidence. Bodhi tree also means that the people who have aspirations can believe. The red ropes are tied in a tree, also let us know its history, not only there are the things we can see, but also there are other stories we do not know.
