This is a video response to Dr. Brian O’Blivion’s video intro to #ds106. It’s also the story of how I got my new social media avatar, which you’ll see popping up everywhere shortly. And don’t go thinking this means I’m not enthusiastic about the #ds106 class. That was just a really long lecture. Really, really, really long.
To contextualize, I recorded video of myself while I watched Dr. O’Blivion’s lecture. Then because it was an ungodly long lecture I chopped up bits of my video and sped it up. So before, where you could distinguish his words, I have now turned Dr. O into Oblivion the Chipmunk. You can argue that lecturers who can see their audiences are more in touch with audience response. That’s one thing Dr. O is missing by only existing on TV, audience reaction, so I’m trying to help him out.
Of course, my response was not the first and most awesome, but it’ll have to do.
