    Weekly Summary 10+11


    These two weeks went by extremely quick. I cannot believe the semester is going to end in a few short weeks. I was very scared of the video assignments. I am not an expert editor by any meanings, and my filming could be better, but it did give me so …

    Daily Creates



    This was a flag I designed for my country. I did not go all out on this assignment, I simply put my girlfriend’s initials on the flag and chose some of my favorite colors.

    This is who I Am


    Here’s another amazing video assignment! One that lets you show all about you and who you are. I chose this one because people tend to judge a book by its cover, meaning people are very judgmental.  I have always been and will be a country girl, many people take …

    Weekly Summary: Video killed the DS106-er


    So…..video assignments suck. I thought I would get in there and get started and realize that it’s not so bad and iMovie isn’t difficult and with enough hard work and effort I could master video projects! Wrong. This week sucked and I never want to revisit it ever again.

    Playing Through the Pain Mashup



    For this Sports Mashup, I wanted to go with something a little different than normal highlights with cool moves and awesome catches. I made a mashup involving some of the gutsiest performances in sports history. One of the worst things about sports is the terrible injuries which can …

    If you were following my blog during the month of October, you are familiar with my group’s radio show. Since the assignment was due shortly before Halloween (the show actually premiered the eve of Halloween, which was perfect!), us group members decided to have a spooky theme. We decided …
