My First Bite of DS106

Posted by

After several failed attempts at joining previous iterations of the DS106 online course, I’m making a more focused, disciplined effort this time around. Don’t know about DS106?

“Digital Storytelling (also affectionately known as ds106) is an open, online course that happens at various times throughout the year at the University of Mary Washington… but you can join in whenever you like and leave whenever you need. This course is free to anyone who wants to take it, and the only requirements are a real computer, a hardy internet connection, preferrably a domain of your own and some commodity web hosting, and all the creativity you can muster.”

For my first magic trick–er–assignment, I give you a meticulously hand-animated1 gif from one of my favorite films…


I like to imagine some silly, cartoon-y music playing in the background while I watch this.

  1. Well, Photoshop animated. “Hand screen-captured” doesn’t have the same ring to it.
