Weekly Summary Final Week

As for my summary of the week, I think it went pretty well. I am satisfied with my work and my time management of the project. I think everything went smoothly (besides the audio part of course) and now it is time for my to create my daily creates, tutorials, and assignments.

I spent most of this week focusing on the final project and once that was finished, I worked on doing my tutorials, assignments, and daily creates. These were not too difficult to create and I did not mind it that much. I was worried that putting these off so long would bite me in the butt but it didn’t. Overall, this week was stressful but worth it!

Weekly Summary 12

This was was pretty easy I felt like. I really enjoyed the remixes and mashups that we got to do. I think it allowed for a lot of room to be creative and try new things. I realized when I was commenting that the daily creates were supposed to be put on Twitter, I have been completely passing by that so I guess I didn’t do that but I did do the daily creates and posted them on my blog. My favorite thing this week was probably the remixes. I like how we could click that button and it was a whole new twist we could do on our own previous project. This week I watched some of the videos provided to better understand what we were doing. Then I began with the mash ups followed by remixes. I’ve gotten in the schedule of checking the daily creates each day to decided which ones I want to do. I did the commenting last because it usually takes the longest to do. Overall, I am happy with how this week turned out and the work we got to do.

Weekly Summary 11

This week wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. I actually enjoyed the few videos I made and I thought they were pretty easy. I actually got my daily creates done on time and got to do three this week. The three I ended up doing were easy and fun. The reading we had to do wasn’t awful and I feel like I learned a lot by reading it. The sixteen stars of video assignments I thought would be tough to reach but I just scrolled through and found the best ones that appealed to me and it actually came out to sixteen stars. Some of the videos I was able to take at work which made it super easier and better. This week was better than other weeks for getting things done and being able to do them correctly. Commenting I ended up doing last because it is usually time consuming and tedious.

Weekly Summary 10

This week was challenging in my opinion. I am not very good with the video stuff I think or the editing over things. I couldn’t figure out how to voice over my video essay so I just decided to type it and go for it. Not being able to figure out how to voice things over definitely created a problem for the video assignments too. I started off with watching all the videos that were linked into this week to learn about what I was supposed to be doing. Then I decided to download all the different apps and things I needed to try to make the video essay. I found the clip I wanted from a movie we watched earlier in this class. I even figured out how to mute it so I could hopefully talk but that didn’t work out so well when I couldn’t figure out how to put my voice in there. I just don’t think the whole video or editing thing is for me. I enjoyed some of the video assignments though, the ones that weren’t too challenging for me to figure out how to do.

Weekly Summary 8

This week was alright I guess. The radioshow seemed pretty stressful at first but it all worked out in the end. I think it turned out really well too! I’m glad it is over though. This week I focused on the radioshow and figuring out a plan for that. It was tough with all of us having such tight schedules. The comments are tedious but easy enough.

Weekly Summary Week 7

This week I thought would be better because of the light work but it wasn’t the easiest. Getting things figured out with my group was proabably the hardest part but I think things are moving along. I was not able to do any audio assignments because I had to work on someone else’somputer but I did my best on everything else and got it all done. The commenting on other’s posts was probably the most difficult part for me because it feels so awkward commenting on things for people you don’t even know and will probably never meet face to face. The radio show I think will be interesting in the upcoming week and figuring all the parts out with that. This week, I focused on eamiling back adn forth with my group and then going step by step with the different steps for this week. I found an interesting program on the computer I had to do my work on and it made logos so it helped with the promo project although I am not the best at technology.

Weekly Summary Week 3

This week was not as challenging as the previous weeks in my opinion. I enjoyed learning what a host character was and coming up with one of my own. The writing assignments were tough and I found it difficult to come up with a couple things but it wasn’t too awful. My favorite part was the daily create today. It was funny to think of the different things I could come up with if you only change on letter in a title. I also like Vonnegut’s explanation of a story and the video because I thought he was super funny and goofy about the subject. Organizing my blog wasn’t hard but it wouldn’t let me see all my options when trying to add posts to different categories so that got frustrating fast. I tried to do this week like I have been doing the past weeks but taking it step by step and that seems to be working out pretty well.

Weekly Summary Week 2

This week was also pretty tough for me like last week. There was a lot of different things to do this week that I didn’t keep up with and track of. I liked the variety of things we got to do this week but the videos and things we needed to read were very time consuming and stressful. I enjoy learning about the different things DS16 as to offer and what the course is about but I’m not very handy on computers so it makes this course more challenging for me. I am also not very good about commenting on other’s posts and it makes me feel uncomfortable writing things to other people I do not know. Customizing my blog was definitely my favorite part of this week’s assignments. I had a great time seeing all the different things I could do. Next week I want to work on my timing and not waiting until the last minute.  I learned this week how much time the course was going to take and how interesting it could be later on down the semester.

Like last week, I pretty much just went down the list and did the assignments in order. I skipped over the ones I knew wold take me longer in an effort to get things done faster and went back to them at the end. Some of the videos I listened to while I worked on other assignments and somethings, like customizing, I had done just in random thought while trying to look for other things that I was supposed to do.

Weekly Summary

This week was a week full of creating things and figuring out how to do new things. Creating all the accounts wasn’t difficult but it was very time consuming. I had to make sure to write down all the accounts and passwords since I tend to forget those things. Creating the domain and WordPress was definitely the most frustrating part. I could not figure out how to connect my subdomain to my WordPress. I ended up having to email the professor for help. Apparently I just did the steps wrong and had to redo some things.

I learned this week how to create a domain, subdomain, and embedding. Embedding was easier than I thought it would be but creating all the things was tougher than I thought it would be. Connecting the subdomain was what drove me crazy. Through this week I was really just trying to figure out my in-person classes and figuring out how to manage those. I feel like I kind of put this off until the last minute which was not the brightest idea. I looked everything over and read what I needed to do but I waited to do it. For my thought process, I just took it step at a time. I went down the number list order an did them one by one. I tried to keep all the usernames and accounts around the same names and passwords to make it easier to remember. My favorite part of the week or the part I enjoyed most was the different horror things we got to watch and read. Scary movies tend to be my favorite so I enjoyed the theme of the week and what we got to learn about.
