Week 9 Summary

We started off listening to all the radio shows that the class created. Here are my thought's on one of my favorites: Gladius Tenebris Secat Next I changed an entire webpage with X-Ray Goggles: Website Storytelling Then, 8 stars worth of web assignments: Dream Room-4.5 stars Dream Vacation-3.5 stars Finally, a story through Daily Creates!: Connect the Dots...or Tweets?

Connect the Dots…or Tweets?

This isn't exactly a story per say but I thought it would be a fun way to connect My Daily Creates from this week! It all starts with Harry, Hermione, and Ron. Ron always feels left out and like a nobody around Harry and Herminone. Like he's never good enough. Not even the dementors want him! https://twitter.com/k_heflin/status/844620149596524544 Then we have our little house elf, Dobby, who's so ugly that he manages to be cute. Dobby has spent his entire life as an abused servant to the Malfoys. Ron feels a strange sort of kinship with the elf and ends up giving him socks ("Socks are Dobby's favorite, favorite clothes, sir!")…

Website Storytelling

This was an interesting  assignment for me. Changing the design of a webpage without changing the original? Not exactly something I've ever done before! However, after I downloaded X-Ray Goggles and did some playing around, it ended being kind've fun. All the advice I found said to use  simple sites like an Amazon sale page or a Craigslist add so thats where I started. I decided it would be fun to sell goats on Craigslist. I found a very basic from the Athens, Georgia area and created a crazy little story. I kept the original pictures (those babies are adorable!) but changed the title, price, map dot location and the…

Wanderlust and Day Dreams

What is a vacation? I haven't had a real one in so long! However, I've always wanted to travel to southern Europe and the Mediterranean coast and this assignment was the perfect excuse to do a little research/planning. I love all the things you can find on Pinterest and boy did I get a lot of ideas! Unfortunately....I'm pretty sure it would take me about a year to do everything I want to do there! Ideally, I would start out in Moracco, hit Portugal and Spain, then travel along the coasts of France, Italy and Greece, then sailing across and spending some time in Egypt! I know Egypt wouldn't generally…

Redecorating!

Designing my dream rooms?! This assignment could not have come at a better time! I'm moving into a new apartment in a few weeks so this really called out to me when I came across it. I always need decorating ideas! Not to mention, I'm a Pinterest addict so what better excuse to spend even more time on one of my favorite websites! I started by creating a board specifically for the assignment. Then...well I resurfaced about 2 hours later with quite a selection! Going back through my choices, i definitely noticed I color scheme I leaned towards. Greys, tans, blacks, and muted versions of pinks and blues showed up…

"The sword cuts through the dark" How perfect! I chose to reflect on the Cloak and Dagger show. I just want to start off by saying that I loved the intro! But aside from that, the show itself was pretty great. My group did a "live" broadcast so it was really cool to listen to Cloak and Dagger since it was the complete opposite as it was story telling. The sound effects were put in perfect positions, the ringing phone in the Nancy Drew segment especially! Having the advice segment in between the story kind've felt out of place but the stories and advice were really well thought out. The…

Radio Show Progress Week 2

Well, this week was definitely all about the radio show. Tuesday night, the group finally all go together for a planning session. We discussed what we wanted to talk about and roughed planned out the layout for the show. The big part was determining how many interviews we wanted to do, what we wanted to do the commercials on and which spies we wanted to interview. Unfortunately, even though we met at the Verge in the recording booth, no actual recording got done. However, everyone went home with a script to write and various other portions of the show to work on. Wednesday night, we all got back together at…

Raindrops and Rooftops

For this assignment, we had to imitate the sound of weather using objects only within reach of the computer. Sounds easy, right? Not so much. I picked this one because it seemed like it would be fun but it was harder than I thought. First of all, I don't have much within reach of my computer. Second of all, imitating weather sounds is harder than I thought! Even "cheating" a bit and widening my range of useable objects, weather sounds are not easy to imitate and even harder to make sound legitimate. I tried banging pots and slamming doors to try and imitate thunder, to no avail. Because of the…

Designing my dream rooms?! This assignment could not have come at a better time! I'm moving into a new apartment in a few weeks so this really called out to me when I came across it. I always need decorating ideas! Not to mention, I'm a Pinterest addict so what better excuse to spend even more time on one of my favorite websites! I started by creating a board specifically for the assignment. Then...well I resurfaced about 2 hours later with quite a selection! Going back through my choices, i definitely noticed I color scheme I leaned towards. Greys, tans, blacks, and muted versions of pinks and blues showed up…

"The sword cuts through the dark" How perfect! I chose to reflect on the Cloak and Dagger show. I just want to start off by saying that I loved the intro! But aside from that, the show itself was pretty great. My group did a "live" broadcast so it was really cool to listen to Cloak and Dagger since it was the complete opposite as it was story telling. The sound effects were put in perfect positions, the ringing phone in the Nancy Drew segment especially! Having the advice segment in between the story kind've felt out of place but the stories and advice were really well thought out. The…

Week 8 Summary

Radio Show Progress Week 2

Well, this week was definitely all about the radio show. Tuesday night, the group finally all go together for a planning session. We discussed what we wanted to talk about and roughed planned out the layout for the show. The big part was determining how many interviews we wanted to do, what we wanted to do the commercials on and which spies we wanted to interview. Unfortunately, even though we met at the Verge in the recording booth, no actual recording got done. However, everyone went home with a script to write and various other portions of the show to work on. Wednesday night, we all got back together at…

Raindrops and Rooftops

For this assignment, we had to imitate the sound of weather using objects only within reach of the computer. Sounds easy, right? Not so much. I picked this one because it seemed like it would be fun but it was harder than I thought. First of all, I don't have much within reach of my computer. Second of all, imitating weather sounds is harder than I thought! Even "cheating" a bit and widening my range of useable objects, weather sounds are not easy to imitate and even harder to make sound legitimate. I tried banging pots and slamming doors to try and imitate thunder, to no avail. Because of the…

Week 9 Summary

We started off listening to all the radio shows that the class created. Here are my thought's on one of my favorites: Gladius Tenebris Secat Next I changed an entire webpage with X-Ray Goggles: Website Storytelling Then, 8 stars worth of web assignments: Dream Room-4.5 stars Dream Vacation-3.5 stars Finally, a story through Daily Creates!: Connect the Dots...or Tweets?

Connect the Dots…or Tweets?

This isn't exactly a story per say but I thought it would be a fun way to connect My Daily Creates from this week! It all starts with Harry, Hermione, and Ron. Ron always feels left out and like a nobody around Harry and Herminone. Like he's never good enough. Not even the dementors want him! https://twitter.com/k_heflin/status/844620149596524544 Then we have our little house elf, Dobby, who's so ugly that he manages to be cute. Dobby has spent his entire life as an abused servant to the Malfoys. Ron feels a strange sort of kinship with the elf and ends up giving him socks ("Socks are Dobby's favorite, favorite clothes, sir!")…

Website Storytelling

This was an interesting  assignment for me. Changing the design of a webpage without changing the original? Not exactly something I've ever done before! However, after I downloaded X-Ray Goggles and did some playing around, it ended being kind've fun. All the advice I found said to use  simple sites like an Amazon sale page or a Craigslist add so thats where I started. I decided it would be fun to sell goats on Craigslist. I found a very basic from the Athens, Georgia area and created a crazy little story. I kept the original pictures (those babies are adorable!) but changed the title, price, map dot location and the…
