Week Five Week Jive

When I initially discovered that this week was based on audio assignments I was nervous. I haven’t previously used or edited audio besides adding audio to presentations and recording speeches for other classes. However, I enjoyed this week a lot more than I thought, and I was really proud of the Assignment Bank assignments that I created.

The first thing I did this week was listen to the interviews of Radiolab’s Jad Abumrad and Moon Graffiti by the Truth Podcast, and write my reflection on them.

The next thing I did was record my Radio Show Brainstorm.

After that, I created my Radio Bumper. This was my first time using audio software, and I initially downloaded Audacity. I really struggled trying to figure out how to edit the different sound clips, so I switched to GarageBand. After a little bit of learning by trial and error (and Google), I was able to use this software with more ease.

This week I also did three audio Assignment Bank assignments, which were:

  1. Auditory Hell
  2. All The Relaxation
  3. Sound Effect Story

In addition to these, I also did my live tweet-along on Tuesday at 8PM, and recorded my experience in my blog post DS106 Live Broadcast Experience.

Lastly, I did my three daily creates throughout the week.

Here they are:


For this week’s participation, I interacted by both commenting on other’s blogs and by liking and replying on Twitter. I really enjoyed interacting with my classmates real-time during the tweet-along.

Overall, it was a really good week and I’m excited to see what next week has in store!
