Have you ever taken an online course and wondered if you were really doing work that was worth the effort? How much did you interact with other people in your class? Did you feel alone?
Unfortunately, that’s how a lot of online courses tend to be. But not this one. Meet Jim Groom and Alan Levine, two of the minds behind what is now known simply as ds106.

You won’t be disappointed.
Each day you get a new creative challenge in photo, drawing, audio, video, or writing form, that you can do in 20 minutes or less. Every day since January 8, 2012. Want a taste? Try one at random.

And now for something completely different! Interpret a random remix of the ds106 assignments. Make a new twist on an existing ds106 assignment.
