Drawing with Google!

Posted by

For this web assignment, we were asked to create art using QuickDraw on Google. The objective is to help teach Google by adding your drawings to the world’s largest doodling data set. The way it works is a word will appear, let’s say “axe”, and when you are ready you click “Got It” and the timer will count down starting at 20 (seconds). While you are trying your best to draw a tiger, Google will be taking guesses until either it gets it or time is up. Like this:

Pretty cool!

I was able to create this video by using video recording on my iOS device. If you have a iOS device then you just swipe up from the bottom of your screen and click the recording button on the bottom right. Once I clicked to start recording then I went to the already open site QuickDraw on google and started the game. Once I finished the first round I swiped back up and ended the recording. I then sent the recording to my computer, uploaded it to YouTube and embedded it in this post!

I found both this assignment and recording portion fun! I found the recording pretty easy and I also learned something new! As for the google drawing, I actually spent about 10 minutes playing several rounds of this game. I am not the best at drawing but it was still fun and I feel as if I helped google learn!

Here are my results from the first game I did:
