This is just some friendly advice for future DS106 users. I don’t know what it’s like to be in-class for this course, but I do know that being online is pretty awesome. Dr. Groom is a really laid back guy, but is also very informative and detailed. The course is really what you make of it. You can choose to to do nothing with the assignments and get nothing out of it, or you can take full advantage of each assignment, be creative, and learn more than you ever imagined.
The only tip I have is to really familiarize yourself with everything in the beginning, because it may appear to be complicated and confusing…but it’s not.
