Traditionally, the mid-term ds106 project is an intense effort to produce a quality audio radio show. Each project group (usually comprised of 4-5 people) is tasked to write, produce and record a radio show around a theme. These should show the forms and characteristics of the radio shows you listened to in Unit 4, and demonstrate the ideas of shapes of stories we looked at in Unit 3.
Open participants will need to reach out via their blogs, the ds106 twitter and Google+ communities to find others interested in doing a group radio show. This of course can be a challenge when people are doing the Open ds106 course at their own pace. In the case forming a group is not possible, try to produce at least a short show segment on your own– but the real goal of this is to work as a team, to develop the concepts and media collaboratively.
