    The Final Curtain

    by

    BLUF (Bottom Line Up Front):  From this course, I gained a tremendous amount of capabilities to tell stories in the digital world but also left a lot on the table. 

    When I first started the semester, there was a wide, open space in my mind, not knowing what I’d be …

    That’s All, Folks!

    by

    I spent this class making. I’m one of those people who’s always coming up with ideas for projects but never completes them, but this shows just how much I was able to make I learned how to use new software, and I got better at using software I’ve used before. …

    I did in fact learn something this semester

    by

    Starting off this semester, I knew the bare minimum when it came to any sort of audio, video, and photo editing. You name it, I probably didn’t know how to do it. After many struggles (lots of procrastination, YouTube tutorials, and complaining), I really think I did the impossible. I …

    Prada & Pride Book Talk

    by

    FINALLY. My final project is finished.

    This final took me a while to do because I had no clue how I wanted to set it up. I wanted it to be more like a podcast style, but it seemed really boring/confusing if I just did sound rather than some sort …

    The Story of My Semester

    by

    Throughout this journey in DS106 I have really surprised myself. In the beginning I was very skeptical and doubtful that I would be able to succeed in this class. I was not at all confident in my abilities to do digital assignments because of the limited knowledge and experience I …

    Week 14: That’s A Wrap

    by

    Let’s take a trip down memory lane… spring semester 2022

    Did you make something that you wouldn’t have thought possible a few months ago? 

    Before taking this class I did not think I would be able to do a lot of things I have done now. However, I think the …

    Faith or Fate?

    “Alright, I’ll see you tommorow,” I yelled as I ran to my car. My best friend replied, “Bye Holly!” My best friend, Isaac doesn’t play any sports but he always stays after school to watch my practices and my games. He’s such a thoughtful friend.

    …I love soccer but honestly, …

    Final Meaning

    by

    For my final project, I decided to define what “art” means to me. I see a lot of definitions about what many different people do, and don’t consider art. What immediately comes to mind is the controversy of artists such as Andres Serrano, and the like. What they created was …

    My Story – A Semester Summary

    by

    As I embarked on my journey into ds106 and the creative world, I was contemplating what I would do for each of these assignments and if I would be able to do them. At the start of the semester, I was weary, shy, and did not know much about creativity. …

    Almost There

    by

    This past week I spent focusing on my final project. This started life as a story that would include hyperlinks to audio and visual artifacts that filled out the story and ended as a new subdomain that allows people to submit ideas and makes the story open sourced. I did …

    Grounded

    by

    This project started as a hyperlink story and ended the week as a new subdomain that I plan to turn into an open source story, with other people able to send in ideas to the email I set up for the website. I spent a lot of time on some …

    That’s a Wrap!

    by

    This has been an enjoyable but lengthy class! There were many moving parts, but I definitely think that it was worth all the effort in the end. My final project was fantastic! I have been learning to play the organ for a little less than a year now, and I …

    Week 14 + End of Semester Summary

    by

    Here we are, the end of the semester and my experience with ds106! This has been an extremely long semester for me, probably because it has been my first “normal” spring semester since COVID. I didn’t even know what to expect when this class started, and I remember feeling so …

    The Cast (character mockups)

    by

    There are two main characters in this story: the protagonist and Hel. I decided to leave the protagonist unnamed for two reasons. First, the term protagonist is gender-neutral, and I figured there would be fewer unfair assumptions and requests about her character if producers were not aware of her gender …

    Helvíti hefur frosið yfir

    by

    If you don’t know Icelandic (which wouldn’t be surprising given only around 350,000 people speak the language), let me translate this project’s title. For example, helvíti hefur frosið yfir means hell has frozen over. Back in January, I came up with a concept for a movie or tv show (I …

    Better Days Are Coming

    by

    While getting close to the end of the semester, I wanted to invest a lot of time into some very high quality graphic design work. While the assignment had a heavy emphasis on the idea of creating a story, I put a bit of a twist on things to still …

    Weekly Summary – Project Week

    by

    This week was really stressful. I started the week with my original idea, then scrapped it halfway through the week because I realized that it didn’t mean enough to me. That meant I had to start completely from scratch in the middle of the week. But at least it was …

    Final Project

    by

    After many, many hours of photo, video, and audio editing, I have finally finished my final project.

    Let me preface this by explaining myself before you watch the video.

    Initially, my final project was supposed to be about something else because I quite literally took the instructions of our original …

    The Unluckiest Week

    by

    My main contribution this week was this. This project kind of felt like nothing was going right, and I got frustrated because I knew how to make it better, I just didn’t have time, and I won’t have more time to make it better until after finals are over. …

    In Space, No One Can Hear You Scream

    by

    I’m not going to lie, I’m not super proud of the final product, if only because I knew what I wanted it to be, I knew how to do it, and I would have done it if I hadn’t run out of time. When making this project, I had all …
