It was interesting to listen to the other radio shows, especially looking for the differences in each one. I think that mine was a lot different than most others, but I enjoyed them regardless. This was a pretty fun project overall. Here is my review for the Autumnal Show
These are my daily creates for the week. As usual, they were an enjoyable part of ds106. I thought it was a clever little twist to create a story about them. They weren’t my favorite daily creates, but they are a quick fun activity to do when you are bored.
I had a fair amount of trouble doing to the web storytelling activity this week. I was about half way done but I messed up the save so I had to restart it. Then I had it nearly finished and I clicked a hyperlink erasing a solid portion of my work. Once I finally finished it up though, I really enjoyed it. It was fun creating my own webpage (I guess you could say). I searched “Philadelphia Eagles” in google, then changed all of the Philadelphias to UMW or University of Mary Washington. I also switched the player names to some from two of my favorite football movies, “The Longest Yard” and “The Replacements”. I think one of my more clever changes was that every time the page said “Philly” I changed it to “Freddy”. Its the stuff of genius, I know. Despite all the trouble I had with this assignment, now that I think I have the hang of it, I am looking forward to more of them in the future.
This week I had some even more serious than usual procrastination issues. I didn’t even think about the weekly assignments until Friday, but by then I was out of town and away from my computer until Sunday late afternoon. I can normally judge how long these assignments are going to take, but this week I was way off, and for that reason I am way late with summary.
