40 Minutes of ds106 in 1 Minute

This assignment called “Speed up your work day” was pretty cool and I really like how it turned out. Since it is a weekend and I am not at work I decided to record my ds106 day! The whole premise of the assignment is to, you guess it, speed up your work day. So, I took about 40 minutes of a screencast of me just doing random ds106 assignments, while working on a few different things. I really think this captures the essence of ds106 and what it is all about….being creative and sharing what you create. Through the video you can see several of my assignments unfold in the process, along with this one, and me commenting on other students blogs as well. Here is my ds106 day!

Once this class is all said and done, I think I will look back on this video and just enjoy how much fun this class, and the process that comes with it, truly was. Speaking of process, this video was not hard to create and anyone who has Quicktime Player on their computer can make this video. I’ve shown you before how to make a screencast, but I will tell you again as a refresher.

Open up Quicktime: Go to>File>New Screen Recording>then press record. That simple and when you want to stop just press the stop button.

Save the video to your desktop or somewhere convenient. If you wish to add more to the video like I did with the audio and titles, you will need some form of video editing software. I used iMovie because that is what I am familiar with. I simply just added some text to the beginning and end of the video and used a song I found on Royalty Free Music for the sound. Also to speed up the video alls you have to do is select the entire clip>right click>show speed editor> and move the speed editor tool to the left to speed it up or to the right to slow it down.

    This was a very clever idea! Great job. I like how you recorded your screen. I didn’t know that was possible, which is silly because technology is so advanced these days. Sadly, I’m still learning how to use my MacBook even though I have had it for almost a year. You also did a great job with the tutorial. I always find screenshots and step-by-step instructions helpful.
