Weekly Summary #2

Reflections

I enjoyed reading and researching Creative Commons and seeing just how it affected how I do my work. It makes me more deeply appreciate the public domain and that people want everyone to be able to share anything informative or educational.

The Scott LoDown podcasts are a neat way to reach out to students, both open participants and local students, and let them know what is going on in the class. It’s always helpful to have some tips and tricks and these are especially cool because they are available whenever we want to reference them. I enjoy listening to them every week.

I also really enjoyed delving in and learning in depth about design. It helps to read these things, especially since I myself am not very artistic. It really helped me to view my work with a different eye and try to incorporate these elements into my design assignments.

I have to admit that I was so overwhelmed this week I didn’t keep up so well with the Daily Creates. One isn’t listed just because it’s written, but otherwise I think I may have forgotten to post these to twitter….It’s been a rough week, I’m glad it’s over and starting tomorrow I’m doing these every day!

Weekly Reflection

This week was far more challenging for me than the last. I sputtered in the beginning with Audio Assignments and then spent the rest of the week obsessing on them a bit too much. I didn’t pay attention to the finer detail over all, I was just so overwhelmed with figuring out the program. Now that I’ve spent the last 7 days with Audacity, I feel like I’m much more competent than at the start. It’s gotten to the point where I’m starting to enjoy mixing things where are before I couldn’t even drag my selections into the program. I’m looking forward to next week and the challenge of online groups. I’m sure it will be prove to be much different than something I am normally used to. Really excited to make a Radio Show! It’s been a good week guys!
