Socialize media- 31/2 stars #WebAssignments1656

For this assignment I was to make social media accounts for a character! I chose my dog of course. I made my Irish doodle puppy 3 web pages, Facebook, twitter, and Instagram! Its always a huge pain in the neck creating new social media account but this was well worth the time. I followed all kinds of other dogs and animal lover accounts to make it more personalized! I even updated his bio’s. His profile picture is a pic of him and I! 🙂  Now he can keep in paw touch with all his buddies.. Really cant believe I did this but i did😂

lol.. enjoy!

Way Back Machine-2 stars- #WebAssignments115

This website is pretty freaking cool. I chose to view www.amazon.com “way back”! My favorite part of this experience was seeing the level of site visitation in the past ten years. It has gone up exponentially. Possibly from a more established brand name, or maybe because the site design is better! After viewing amazons old website templates, its no wonder no one visited the URL! The site was SO CONFUSING until around 2008. Literally absolutely nothing flows on the site. There is no directory, no visible search engine, all the links all look alike and nothing really stands out to me. I couldn’t even navigate to my cart on this site..

(February 2000-)

http://web.archive.org/web/20000229081105/http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/subst/home/home.html)

The site now is much more appealing. It combines easiness and readiness. All similar links are in one spot, navigation is so easy, and I can actually see all my options. Also, if I had trouble, there a hotline I can now call, or a can participate in a live chat. The color scheme of the new site is too very alluring. Its small improvements such as this that can make or break a site such as this one!

Pinteresting a character -2 1/2 stars-

https://www.pinterest.com/abiagilhunt/who-made-this-board/

Who could have possibly made this Pinterest board? I actually have already had one follow add me and guess! She loves all things country, just like she sings in her songs. This country rocking woman one of my favorite female music artists of all time (mentioned a couple times throughout this course.. lol). Can you guess what country star made this Pinterest board? Feel to guess in a comment!

 

 

Thanks for taking a look everyone!! Please leave comments for feedback of my work. 🙂

Week 4 Summary

I have officially completed the first 1/4th of the fall 2016 semester! As far as Digital Storytelling goes I’m off to a pretty good start. I really thought that I would struggle terribly in this class. Not only because its my first online class, but also because I am such a dork when it comes to anything on computers!

This week was all about audio. When i think of audio generally all I think if is music, however after this week I recognized that audio goes beyond the range of musical production. Audio can be incorporated into pretty much anything in our daily lives. After this week I would probably say that audio is most important and prominent in film. “Moon Graffiti” was a very interesting take on how audio can set a mood. When I closed my eyes, I really felt like i was in a space helmet. The used balances of sound and silence to give the audio a feel like you are in space. Very cool!

 

This week I also had a really difficult time using audacity. Even with the help desk in info online I was unable to create anything on the program. I have an appointment with Audio resources on Monday at 3 so hopefully they can help me out….

I brainstormed a series of idea for the a Radio show in a blog post (posted below). Please give me some feed back on my topics! I think if we all come together we can have a really good time with this.

Radio Show Brianstorm! (separate post)

 

We also started tuning into DS106 radio this week. Thursday night I tuned in a little late because of work, but I still managed to get a half hour of listening in! My bumper for the DS106 radio is below-

Weekly Summary: Week 3

 

 

Wow what another busy week! I cannot believe I am at the end of my third week of my junior year of college. Boy does it fly by! This weeks set of assignments was all based of visual representations and photography. Photography is one of my favorite things to do because it is so broad. You can take photos anytime, anywhere, and of anything you want. There aren’t any qualifications, just a performing camera.

Below this post are all of my blog posts from this week covering the weekly assignments of #DS106. I had a lot of fun doing these assignments this week! They were all very strait forward and easy to follow. The only difficulty I ran into was on my photo-blitzer when I didn’t originally copy over the link for my seven tasks. Luckily, I snagged a photo on my phone before I had navigated away from the window and was able to recover the information in my twitter post.

I love the fact that we can communicate with other students online. I enjoy keeping up with my peers blogs and giving them feedback. Receiving feedback for my blog is also very rewarding. I can not thank everyone enough for all their support and interest! Im ecstatically awaiting for what next week will bring! Please enjoy all of my hard work from week three below. 🙂

Cheers!
