Week 5 Summary

DS106: Digital Storytelling has now come to an end. While this class hasn’t always been easy, it was loads of fun and I learned a lot, which I talked about in my final reflection

For our final project, we were to produce a story around a character that used all media forms we’ve worked with this semester: visual, design, audio, and video. I was somewhat dreading this assignment because I’m not very good at creative writing, but I honestly think it turned out pretty well!

Along with the story and the media used in it, we had to create tutorials for all the media we used in out story.

There it is, my final project. This course has been a lot of fun. I learned a lot of things, including how to use different digital tools that I had never used before. I can’t believe that, as a musician, I had never used Audacity before! Now, I love it and will definitely be using it again. This course also taught me that I’m creative in more ways than just writing music.

If I had the chance to take this class again, I would definitely space out my work on the assignments to relieve some of the stress I’ve experienced over the last 5 weeks.

The most exciting project was definitely the final project. the final project assignment seemed terrifying at first, because I’m awful at creative writing, so I had no clue what I was going to do for it. The idea eventually came to me, and I’m actually really happy with how it all turned out.

I definitely had a rough start to this course, but I’m really glad I took this course; it’s been extremely rewarding.
