In addition to two tutorials, we had to create two brand new assignments to share with DS106.
The first assignment I created is called “Dear sixteen year old, me“! I feel very official having a DS106 assignment out there with my name on it! Basically all you do is write a letter to your 16 year old self and record it. I labeled this as a Video assignment, but I can see it working as an audio assignment as well, especially if you were to create a video with pictures of your high school days and have the recording in the background.
My inspiration came from this video, I know its about skin cancer, but I liked the general premise behind the video and thought it would be fun to write a letter to my own 16 year old self. All I did was record the video in iMovie, edit a little and add a title and credit screen. I gave this 2 stars because it is a relatively easy assignment, but due to the potential video editing and how fancy you get with filming it, I thought 2 stars was appropriate.
Here is my video:
The second assignment I created was another video assignment, entitled “It’s Vacation Time“! I LOVE going on vacation and traveling new places. So I thought it would be fun to have a video assignment to share pictures and memories from our vacations. I gave the assignment 2 stars. I created my example in iMovie, it’s about my trip on a Mediterranean cruise. I even made a tutorial on how to do it.
