Ellie’s Log and Me
by Josh Garhofer, liberal studies major
I
nterning at OSU Libraries and Press has given me hands
on experience with website-usability tests and in creat-
ing a new video trailer for
Ellie’s Log
. In this stage of
my internship, I am updating my blog,
Josh’s Log: Internship
Journal
; creating scripts for our website-usability tests; and,
creating storyboards for the new video trailer.
Josh’s Log
,
consists of my weekly oversight as well as images of nature
near Corvallis and of my home by the beach in Seaside,
Oregon. When working on the Ellie’s Log website, I find it
somewhat challenging to write for an audience ranging from
10–12 years of age. One of the main goals for these tests is to
make it so the user knows exactly where to find things on the
website. The simpler it is to find things, the happier our users
will be. The video trailer is something that is still in the plan-
ning process. This is where my media communication degree
will be very helpful.
Getting this sort of experience is something I have always
wanted with my education here at Oregon State. Things I am
learning in this internship really cannot be taught in the class-
room. Being able to work in a team and communicate with
others is very important in the office environment. Although
my bosses are helping me along, most of the time I am creat-
ing content and working on new ideas for the website. I am
always eager to ask questions and I feel very strongly about
doing something right the first time.
My main focus of study is in the applicable use of social
media. I have hopes that we can somehow incorporate social
media into the Ellie’s Log website. I also hope my work here
will be able to ensure my position at an advertising agency. I
hope to one day have a career in marketing/advertising while
living close to the ocean.
