    making a tutorial

    by

    This is a tutorial on how to make a tutorial. Tutorial-ception anyone? (Okay, I admit, I ran out of ideas, but scrambling to make those three tutorials opened my eyes to the issues that need to be addressed in the creation of these things.)

    This won’t be a step by …

    It’s nearly the end of July. Classes ended in April. This reflection is well overdue, along with everything else on this blog.

    Let’s begin at the beginning, which I think is always a good place to start. All I remember from the early days of class is the daily creates, …

    move i/on

    by

    This is a little bit delayed due to being so busy recently I will say. At the end of June, I moved out of my house and moved into my apartment. New month, new home. Summer has been pretty crazy but pretty boring at the same time. I’ve been working …

    I know I was supposed to blog about my summer using different types of online media to bring the experiences I’m experiencing to the internet. The only problem with the month of June is that I really did nothing besides work and reading books and going out with friends and …

    let’s go to the beach, beach

    by

     

    Nothing says summer more than an impromptu beach day trip.

    My friend and I went to Colonial Beach for the day.

    It was off-season and hardly anyone was there, which meant peaceful, relaxing quiet by the waves. It also meant drinks at the tiki bar, including free samples from …

    Let us re-do this Finished Thing

    Final Project(s) Post;
    Essentially I was looking to do something different that I hadn’t done before, with combining several skills I have collected over the class. It was intended to be a .gif, but with my luck GIMP will freak on me or will fail to process, so I will …

    DS106 has been an overall interesting experience. When I signed up for the class I was really unsure as to what the class entailed.  I just figured it be some form of storytelling in a digital way.  Never did I think that the class would encompass so many forms of …

    The third assignment I created is called Rap Battle.

    Basically, to complete this assignment, you would need to take an existing rap song and use the instrumental version of the song to recreate your own lyrics, or make up some music, record it, and rap over it.

    Or I …

    Final Reflection Post

    I’m still not positive what a personal cyber infrastructure is, but I think it’s basically our own personal space on the internet, to do with it what we please. I think that it’s really beneficial to have something like that, and I think having a class full of young people …

#tdc2713 #ds106 Two Show Mashup

Think of two shows that have a common thread. Maybe the same actor appeared in two different shows. Do a mashup of the two shows using the commonality.
