    If Only It Were That Easy

    Share the Knowledge For my second assignment this week, I completed the Vintage Educational Video for five stars. I have seen many workplace instructional videos, which are very similar to the old educational videos, so the styling for this video was familiar. Why this Knowledge is Important It took me many years to learn how …

    It all Comes Crashing Down

    The Sounds Speak for Themselves The final assignment this week was more or less the equivalent to the audio version of a design effect: use audio editing skills to create a ninety-second­-or-less audio story without verbal communication. Again, dealing with steam powered Detroit, I chose to continue where I left off with Hollis and Meg’s …

    Tensions Flare at Home

    Story Time! Telling a story using audio could not possibly be hard, right? Well, while literally telling a story into a mic has inherent simplicities, making an audio story for the story-time assignment had challenges. Mixing the audio of the different tracks required much listening and re-listening to get the volumes and fades just right. …

    Was this Week Supposed to be Hard by Design?

    The Week-Two Woes… “What happened this week?” I keep asking myself.  “ds106 happened,” I respond. This week, I been consistently been pulling all-nighters to complete my assignments.  I did manage to change my work schedule so that I would get off the job around six or seven o’clock each night, but the time required to …

    Keep Our World Wet

    If not Global Warming, Then What? Continuing along my steam-train of thought with the question of the week, I decided to consider the environmental issues that would be associated with a developing world that ran on steam.  Even in the real world, power-plants rely on steam generation to create electricity: nuclear, coal-fired, and gas-fired plants …
