Dear new Ds106 students,
You are in for a very productive semester with lots of exciting things to learn about. Although this class is fun, it is also a lot of work to keep up with (it is more like busy relaxing work that doesn’t really seem like loads of work). I honestly think anyone can take this class and strive in it, I say this because I was taking 17 credits (mostly computer science courses) and managed to get an A on every assignment given to me. Get ready to learn about how to blog, how to be a good photographer, how to make masterpieces, how to edit videos and most important how to have fun! There are weekly creates that you have to do every week. Weekly creates are random assignments posted on twitter and only take at most 15 minutes to complete. There are also assignment banks which are rated in stars. Most of the week, professor Paul will give you a fix number of stars you should do, again these assignment are not that difficult, they are more like fun work. I did mention that the work is busy fun work so please don’t wait the day before your assignments are due or you won’t be able to finish it. You will have to create a bit of social sites to complete some of the assignments given, I really thought this was a great thing because I got a chance to use things I had never used before. Trust me, you are in for a good treat!
Sincerely, A student that would not mind taking this class again!
