    If I could give one piece of advice for future ds106 students, it would be: don’t be intimidated by technology!

    to new ds106 students-

    The course in the beginning  is very scary, making your domain was the hardest part of the whole class and it was within the first week.

    After that it is just having fun! I urge shy people such as myself to open and because hey, its …

    Finally, I get to chase Bigfoot.


    I wanted to make my final project something that I would really enjoy doing because we had to do it over a long span of time. I will also be honest in the fact that I did procrastinate with the final compilation of the whole thing and ran into some …

    ds106 Advice


    For anyone just coming into ds106, you’ve chosen well. This is a fun course, but it is a lot of work. Since it’s online, you’ll have to manage your time wisely and make sure you don’t forget about it just because you don’t have to attend class. Space out all …

    UN Venus Flag


    I can’t really use this as one of my media components, since the flag already counts as a visual component, but I felt like posting it anyways. I made this here flag of the UN administration for colonising Venus:

    It’s pretty basic, but I like it. It’s based on the …

    Giant Map Time


    The first thing I made for my final project was this gigantic Venus map:

    The process for making this was pretty wild. First things first, I found myself a heightmap of Venus:

    I put this into a really neat program called Wilbur, which can be used to edit heightmaps. …

    Writing Makes the World Go ‘Round


    Instead of doing a design assignment, I thought a writing one would be more fitting for me as a student, as I am a sociology major which involves a lot of writing. I’m also not very good at designing photos…and I’m much better at writing.

    For this segment, I will …

    ds106 Advice


    Ds106 is probably different that most of the other classes you have taken. It’s a class about blogging and besides that it can really be about anything you want it to be. That’s the glory of this class and is what makes it so different from anything else. Different doesn’t …

    A Radio Show Post


    Hey guys,

    Just to put this out there, in weeks 6 and 7 during the radio broadcast, I found my group, and we soon started up a Google Doc and began spitballing ideas.  The idea we ended up settling on had to do with history retold from a historical perspective.  …

    What to Expect When You’re… Signed up for DS106


    Digital Story telling fulfills a gen ed. here at Mary Washington. That was the main reason why I took this course. This course is a lot of work. However, the work is very much enjoyable. Sometimes you will want to throw your computer at a wall because you can’t figure …

    The good years


    Yesterday’s Daily Create challenge was to make an infographic of a song. I had seen people do this before. My personal favorite was the flowchart for Devo’s Whip It.

    Unfortunately I don’t know who gets credit for this. I knew there was no way I could come close to that …
