This DS106 Website...

First off, I highly appreciate what this site is accomplishing--it's a fantastic and creative tool for learning. I'm surprised at the versatile amount of projects that people have come up with and they all use a wide array of different types of software and editing techniques. It's also nice to see that they have tutorials for anyone who wish to attempt the assignments; otherwise, I'm sure everyone else would be like:
 It's strange for me, to be honest--I have such mixed feelings about the site. A part of me doesn't care for it, considering that most of the assignments sound like random things that I'd do on my spare time. For example, we'll use this assignment. In this assignment, the purpose is to imitate some weather sounds using your voice and whatever's in arm's length of your computer. Kind of out there, right?  However, I just can't deny the fact that it's such a unique concept for a classroom!

Overall, I'm digging the site. It's an amazing execution of a fantastic idea and I wouldn't mind being involved. I'm quite tempted to create an assignment of my own for that site! :D


  1. It is an amazing website. We can create ideas , and put them in DS106. Everyone can access in it, and it's free. I will still use this website for my future writing.

  2. Josh I could see you in the computer lab making weather noises. I do like this site though, and I can not wait to see all off the random things our class turns in. Also I just want to add that I am diggin’ the random Jonny Depp picture. What do you think you are going to do for your first post?

    1. Honestly, I'm not sure. I'm actually thinking of making up my own assignment to submit (if I'm allowed, of course).
