This is the aggregated home for the online, open course Digital Storytelling that will be starting January 10th, 2011.
To have your work syndicated into this site you simply need to add your blog/site URL and site name to the form to the right. Additionally, if you’d like to filter your posts by tag just add the tag you’ll be using to the posts for this course and we’ll syndicate just those posts. We recommend ds106, which is the course tag.
Also, you might want to register for this site so you can access and edit the course wiki as well as get regular email updates as the course gets underway—we promise we won’t share your information with anyone nor will we abuse your time with too many senseless emails.
Now let’s create some art, damn it!
I want an assignment where you answer some sort of deep philosophical question entirely by remixing Michael Jackson song lyrics.
I’ve failed at the first hurdle and am not able to registerfor the course. No password is being accepted.
Check your email, you should now be confirmed and registered. Just be sure to change your password.
Also, your username is the same as your email username
I’m having trouble signing up as well, I’m afraid. A bit late, but I’d really like to participate.
you are all set, you should have your username and password in your email. Welcome aboard, just let me know your blog url and the tag you will be using for the ds106 posts.
Have my user name and password but can’t for the life of me locate the tasks. Must be missing something blatantly obvious as others have started. Don’t want to commmence my blog with some inane comment about how I don’t know where I’m expected to begin !!! Any direction appreciated
You haven’t missed anything. I have yet to put out the first assignments. All the maniacs have been doing assignments others have recommended leading up to the course. So, in short, you aren’t missing anything yet. So stay tuned. You should get something today.
I thought that I had registered properly last Sunday night but must have missed something-sorry! I registered under my new-born domain “myspate.net” but I must have done something wrong. The site appears, but my first post is not showing. Can you please suggest what to do?
I’ve registered for the site successfully, but it’s not clear to me what password I should be using when I input my information above to syndicate my posts. I’ve tried a few of my usuals (i.e. the ones I might have used to sign up earlier), and they don’t seem to be working. Should the password be the same as my login to the site?
For syndicating your site through the right-hand sidebar, simply add the URL, blog title, course tag (ds106), and form password which is ds106 as well.
What is your blog URL? Maybe I can help :)
You are all set, posts pulling cleanly and associated with your profile. Thanks for the email, all is good!
I feel incredibly silly. It clearly states in the instructions that “ds106” is the password. Thanks for your help!
Hi again Jim,
I’m not seeing my first post anywhere on this site … I used ds106 as both a tag and a category on it. When I go to the Wiki section and click on “My contributions,” again nothing comes up. Any ideas for what might be happening?
It actually wouldn;t be under the wiki section, sorry for the confusion there. It is actually reflected in your profile on ds106.us. So go to your profile here:
And then look at the space titled tags, and you’ll see the two posts being pulled in:
Does this make sense, anything there has been pulled into the ds106.us site. Let me know if I am not understanding the issue.
WhAt A gReAt cOuRsE, wish I could join you, guys! :))))))))
Will be lurking quietly in the background until you start offering it online!
Keep up the good work,
Best wishes from rainy Southampton
