Final Project – Weekly Summary

This final is pretty open ended. My group and I decided that the most important parts to focus on were 1) making the project fit into multiple medias and 2) relate to the course theme, the 80s. The two media platforms we decided to post our project on were Soundcloud and YouTube, some of the most popular sites for audio and visuals, respectively. Our project is going to relate to

Week 11 – Video Show Progress

After making our individual trailers, my group met on Zoom and discussed how we wanted to do this final video project. It was pretty cool that all of us had never met before this class and our formed together because none of had groups already. It’s even cooler than all 5 of decided to stay together for an optional group project. Sort of shows the power of the internet. Our

Week 11 – Weekly Summary

Here is my blog post and Group Project Video this week: I am very proud of my editing work. It took around 4 or 5 hours in total because I received raw footage from 4 different people without too much structure. My group mates gave me a lot of awesome content, so I had to work with. I edited my video into four sections with themes. This helped me provide

Week 10 – Weekly Summary

This week was fun. I’m excited to be working with the same group again. This week consisted of two video assignments. Videos are my specialty. For both assignments I used iMovie.

Week 9 – Weekly Summary

That was quite a week. Collectively my household temporarily lost four jobs. Times are tough but it is oddly calming knowing that there are millions in the same position. This week was the first time I got to be on a radio show! Even though it was just the class radio, it was super exciting. Secretly, I made notes just to prepare. Personally, I would love for our class theme

Week 9 – Radio Listen

Thank you for Professor Bond for setting up the Skype call! It was pretty cool hearing my group project being presented live. I think we did a great job of

It is so awesome to listen to the final product. There was a lot of coordination that went into this! I hope to take this energy into next week, and future group projects!

Week 8 – Radio Show Progress

Wow, what a week. This was my favorite week in DS106 so far. Through a few meetings, both online and in-person, my group was able to coordinate and execute a plan for the radio show. In hindsight, I think we over-prepared, but I suppose that’s not such a bad thing! This project was challenging because we had to meet online, and create a 5 person project without ever being able
