It brought me back to high school’s ICT and business communication lessons. It refreshed my memory on what certain terms mean and what the abbreviations for items were.

We looked further int how we could save the documents, for example we could use multiple devices that had RAM in them, to help speed up the working process. Many people, including myself, would probably get frustrated at how slow a computer can get when working on large files. 

Finally, during this tutorial, we learnt how edit a video, briefly. There were three ways to “cut” a video piece: using the razor tool, using ripple delete and a 3 point edit. All of which were effective and couple be used when editing real documents.
