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:
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!
