Weekly Summaries


This first week of digital storytelling was an experience.  It made me realize that yes, it is a lot of work but it can also be a lot of fun.  I think that for my first week, that I completed the assignments pretty well.  I could have been more creative.  I did pick a lot of easy ones, but it was with what I had access to at the time.  I didn’t have that much trouble, besides figuring out the whole domain thing.  My favorite assignment was the spubble one! I enjoyed that one a lot.  Throughout the first week, I learned a lot about editing techniques…and also how to upload a video to youtube! If I had to do anything different, it would probably be harder assignments, I need to challenge myself.  I need to try and explore a little, find parts for assignments outside.

Setting up the domain was only a little confusing because I had one previously for my freshmen seminar, but I couldn’t figure out how to change the name of the website so that I could relate it to digital storytelling instead of “Race and Revolution.”  Setting up all other social media was easy.  I already had a google account so that helped.  Flickr, Twitter, and SoundCloud were all step-by-step.

Customizing my blog was fairly easy for me.  I had had experience with customizing WordPress previously for my marketing class.  We had to make a website, and we really had to make it our own.  I wanted to make sure my twitter feed was on there for sure.  I could still probably make it more pretty, but I like the blue.  To me it represents UMW.

Visual Storytelling is something that I have never done before (at least I think).  At least not like this.  I honestly felt like I could be creative in ways I have never imagined.  This class has showed me that there are many ways, online and off, that can aide you in your visual story.  I am glad I got to explore some of them and really can’t wait to explore the rest.
