This week there was a focus on web editing and assignments. I was worried about how difficult the week would be, so as usual… I put it off. However, I found out that I really enjoyed the week in and of itself. You can find my assignments from the week below.
I decided that I wanted to nominate some art for the cover of the DS106 Page. So, I nominated one of my assignments and an assignment from Courtney Hardy as well. All semester, I’ve been super impressed by the art that she has created and I think that DS106 admins should showcase it.
I did the Google Draw Something assignment for 2.5 Stars. The assignment was really fun, but pretty difficult. It was a quick assignment to do and I did it like it was a game, but it was hard to draw things because I don’t have much artistic ability.
Unfortunately, during the original streaming of the radio shows on Monday and Tuesday I was unavailable to listen. However, Professor Bond allowed me to listen to the show by sending me a link and allowed me to still be able to do the review. So, I listened to Distress Signal and absolutely loved it!
Distress Signal was so creative and well thought out! The intro to the show hooked me and made me want to continue listening. The girls were super authentic and organic during the show and that made me smile. Specifically during the different games they did, they seemed to have real reactions which was really cool to hear.
They also related every thing in the show to the superheroes they created, even the weather forecast and I thought that was really creative. The different sound effects were amazing, I love the destruction sounds. The girl’s commercials were super professional and if I didn’t know better, I may have thought they were real commercials!
Also, their use of different voice effects to create “callers” that called into the station was intriguing. Last but not least, I noticed that the girls created a photo specifically for their radio show which was super clever. I didn’t even think to do that and I wish I would’ve.
I’m super impressed by what the girls did with their show and love how creative they were! Great job Distress Signal!
There’s a lot of dogsta grams, so I thought, why not make another? Especially because I love my dog so much. So, I created a dogstagram and you can find the instagram @MandyDogstagram.
This week, I was given the task of creating a story by editing a web page’s original content. I decided to use a website that sells street signs as the site I would modify. I decided to use that site because I was having a hard time using Amazon and Ebay and decided to see if I could more easily work with a different site. Turns out, I could and I did.
This week was a lot of work and I did so much in 3 days. My radio show group didn’t want to work during the break, which I appreciate because I didn’t either. So, we ended up spending a lot of time communicating through GroupMe.
My group worked diligently this week in order to complete our Radio Show Assignment. We didn’t want to spend our long weekend working on the assignment, so we did most of the work on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
This week was long and we did a lot of work to get our radio show finished for the week. Since it was fall break, we didn’t do a lot of communicating during the break and saved most of the work until Wednesday, Thursday and today.
This week the class spent a majority of the time collaborating and thinking about how we’d tackle our radio shows. I am in a group with 3 other people and we have been collaborating through google docs and groupme. We came up with some awesome ideas that you can find below.
