    Farewell To DS106…THE END HAS COME

    I can’t believe I am even typing my final post for DS106, The End. Usually, at the end of the semester I am happy to be done with class. However, this specific class is one I sure am sad to say goodbye to. I had so much fun working on every project I completed. There […]

    Sadly It’s Time To Say Goodbye To Video

    This week was a bit easier than last week because I knew a little bit more about video this time around! I found myself having a much easier time using iMovie! I decided to create a silent documentary and a collection of memories from both high school and college! I had so much fun doing […]

    A Silent Documentary: Braiding Hair

    The silent documentary below is of me braiding my hair. I found it hard to teach people how to proud without being able to explain the process. I tried to incorporate hand gestures to let my audience know to section the hair into three sections. I’m not sure how easy it is to follow along […]

    Video Is Soon To Be Continued….

    This week was definitely the most challenging for me. I don’t usually record video unless it’s a quick video on my iPhone that I just leave on my iPhone lol. I don’t usually create videos to share like I had to this week. I decided to take path one and complete 8 stars worth of […]

    Remixed Logo

    I decided to give Alex Whitmore’s logo a little revamping. I was happy with my initial logo but wanted something a little bit more than just her name. I decided to choose a cool design template on and play around with the color scheme a bit. I also decided to add in that she […]

    It’s Almost A Wrap People!

    Apocalyptic Airwave had their first meeting this past Saturday! Unfortunately, the HCC was locked but we relocated to a nearby coffee shop! Samara, Josh, and I discussed the script and each added more to it. It was interesting meeting with people I have only communicated with via the computer. However, I enjoyed the face to […]

    Design Reflection

    So I just finished up watching the two Ted Talks and looking over some Canva tutorials. I have to say that I found both the videos and the tutorials very beneficial. I have no previous experience in design so I was happy to learn a bit about what design entails. The two Ted Talks were […]

    The End of Week Five!

    As week five comes to a close I find myself feeling accomplished. Going into this week I was nervous because I had no experience with audio prior to this week. I knew about Soundcloud but never used it and I never heard of Audacity. I was thankful to see there was a resources page I […]
