    Dear prospective ds106 students…


    Hello and welcome to ds106, a computer class like you’ve never known before. Are you feeling intimidated after reading the class requirements and expectations? Don’t worry, I too was apprehensive about this class and wondered if I would be able to make it. While the assignments do take time, and …

    Time is going and going…


    This week’s assignments were a little confusing to me but I tried to do whatever I can with it, starting with the Twitter poll. Last Sunday, I had to ask questions about Agent Robert Reynolds or Moncure. The results are shown here. In total, there were 3 questions asked …

    Time literally flying…


    This week’s assignments were pretty fun, especially since I now know the basics of utilizing iMovie. I did have to learn new skills within iMovie when I created the instructional video. While the process took a while to complete, they were feasible. I am really glad that I had the …

    iMovie instructional video!


    This was my first ever instructional video, and I must say, it turned out very well! I decided to create an instructional video by placing subtitles to the video so that the viewers can learn much easier. Seeing visual representation is very helpful for me so I figured that it …

    A Dog’s Life


    For this assignment, I found a clip featuring an adorable dog who seems to be quite jealous and also likes to be petted. I used iMovie to cut the part and recorded my voice over it. Enjoy!

    Because I’m happy!!


    For this remix assignment, I had to do the following:

    Mood Swap

    Flip the mood of the assignment. If it’s light, make it dark. If it’s sad, make it happy. If it’s exhilarating, make it not so exhilarating.

    I also used the previous clip I worked on from one of …

    A red apple from a stranger


    I used iMovie to compile two movie clips that feature the famous red poison apple. The first clip is from the movie, Enchanted, and the second clip is from the original Disney’s, Snow White. I think the clips transitioned nicely as they covered the same theme. A piece of advice, …

    Where’s Wally?


    For this remix assignment, I had to place Wally somewhere in the mashup assignment.

    Where’s Waldo? It.

    For this remix assignment, you want to place Waldo somewhere conspicuous in a Visual or Design Assignment or slip his name quickly into an audio assignment. If you can figure out a way …

    You got mail!


    For this assignment, I used iMovie to combine 2 clips. For the first one, I found the famous AOL phrase, “You got mail!” In response to this comment, I added this scene from Legally Blonde. Enjoy!

    Wow it’s already April!


    I’m proud to say that I completed my mission this week =)

    3 TDCs were done here, and the rest of the video editing were also complete. It did take a while to finish everything but I had a lot of fun in the process; when one didn’t work, …

    Dear 16 year old me


    This was my first video without actually filming in person and I am so proud of myself =)

    I used iMovie for the movie editing software; all of the pictures were from Google Images and the background music was from SoundCloud (Yiruma’s Hope). With the experience I’ve gained from audio …

    Agent Nice Guy’s Tuesday


    Tuesday was such as beautiful day that it was the ideal day to film Agent Nice Guy’s feet. I thought that she deserved a break from her Thursday (in reference to Agent Nice Guy’s Thursday, an audio clip that I made previously about how she was running in the rain …

    New mission for all agents


    After enduring many, many arduous tasks (and I mean arduous!), it’s safe to say that we all became connoisseurs in this field (well, maybe junior connoisseur for me). Regardless, some of us, especially me, have learned new skills that will last a lifetime. Honestly, I have never thought that I …

    End of March??? Really???


    I have something to confess: I could not finish all of my assignments this week. I was rather busy and starting assignments that I was unfamiliar with late left me with the following results. While I was able to complete some, my mission for this week was incomplete and I …

    Frozen spoiler alert


    For this video, I compiled the main scenes from the movie, Frozen. I used iMovie to add and delete the scenes onto the final product and all of the clips I found were from YouTube (I do not own them). This video pretty much sums up the story of Frozen …

    Fresh Prince depicted


    I couldn’t think of any typical spy movies at the top of my head so I contemplated on some shows that I was already familiar with. Fresh Prince of Bel Air was one of my favorite sitcoms that I’ve watched growing up and probably the greatest break for actor Will …

    And the winners are…

    William for debating inside his mind: This was the best because he gave a twist on one of my favorite quotes, “To be or not to be!” Callie for clarifying why batman is called batman: It was best because she clarified my childhood conundrum of why batman is called batman!…

    Freeze time!


    This week’s assignments were all very fun, I must say. To be honest, however, I was very scared in the beginning when I approached them at first (as I always am!); but, after reading more instructions and following step-by-step tutorials, the process was a breeze! I was really surprised that …

    Pikachu Ketchum


    I had a blast creating Pikachu’s résumé especially because I literally grew up with Pokémon and Pikachu was my favorite. At first, I did not know what to write because I never thought about Pikachu having a job. Because Pokémons are similar to pets, we don’t usually think of them …

    Google remix


    Here is the new version of my Google page:

    Google remixed

    I first figured out a way to use X-ray Goggles by dragging the button directly onto bookmarks toolbar. Then, after visiting the most popular search engine, Google, I clicked on all of the texts that I can change. I …

    Eeny meeny miny moe.


    For this assignment, I took a web story page and recreated it to a children’s rhyme song. The recreating process was not too difficult as I followed the tutorial video. I used Google Excel sheet to write out the words that I wanted to be in the video, and these …

    Peter from Netherlands


    Dear ds106,

    Hi! My name is Peter and I live in the Netherlands. I love spicy noodles, soup, candy… basically, everything spicy! In an attempt to fulfill my spiciness dream, I took on a mission and decided to travel to Korea. Here is my story:

    It all started when I …

    Radio show critiqued


    I listened to the radio show on Tuesday called “Sexpionage.” Listening to other radio show as an audience member invoked new experiences:

    Experience of listening- It was a good experience to listen to a show that another group had composed as I was able to hear what others thought of …

    Radio show executed


    Our radio show

    I was really impressed and satisfied with the radio show we created and executed. It took a long time to decide, communicate, and compromise, but we made it to the end and did our best. While group work in itself was not easy, as mentioned last week, …

    Audio assignments have been pretty painstaking for me maybe because I never had the experience of using an audio software. For one audio assignment, I tried to combine 2 songs, one original and one cover of an original, but it turned out that I had the same problem as before …

    30 Seconds Intro

    For this assignment, I recorded my 30 introduction using Audacity. I talked about my likes as a list of items. I thought that 30 second introduction was going to be quite long, given an awkward situation like facing someone you have never met, but approaching it in a categorical…

    Song gone twisted


    I had the chance to get my hands on Audacity and as I was getting myself adjusted using such software, I had a lot of fun playing around with it. I chose the song, Shut Up and Dance by Walk The Moon from my “mixtape,” and I added random effects …
