The pictures below will be all the pictures I was able to capture within the 15 minutes allowed for this challenge. The first and last pictures will include timestamps.
I have only just started Digital Storytelling and I already feel like I have learned so much. From blogging and domain design to using several social media platforms I hadn’t before, you could say it’s been a busy few days. Setting up our own domain was actually surprisingly easy to do for me. Everything that was required had links attached with comprehensive guides that were easy to follow along with. Creating all the social media accounts was pretty straight forward. Once you finished setting one account up it was pretty much just a rinse and repeat process for the other platforms. One concern that arose while completing my multi-modal introduction blog post was that I think it will be difficult to continuously keep up with all of these different platforms. I think as I get into the groove of the class it will be a lot less overwhelming to manage several different social media platforms.
Personally, I found customizing my blog to be the most fun part from this week. It was time that we could truly take to tailor our blog to be a visual representation of ourselves. There were so many different themes to go through that all operate differently. One task that I have found to be pretty difficult is learning how to use the C-Panel to organize my website. Just trying to make sure that everything goes where it needs to be was a bit confusing. I think that the more familiar I get with it, it will make the everyday life in this class easier. So far, I am enjoying this class a lot as it has already taken me way outside my comfort zone!
Posts from the week:
Hi! My name is Jacob Barker. I am currently a senior at the University of Mary Washington. I am studying Computer Science! This post will be used as an introduction to all of my different social medias platforms!
Twitter is the social media platform I am most familiar with using on a day-to-day basis. This means it will most likely be the most up-to-date platform of mine. If you’re interested in some of my buring hot takes, here it is:
Soundcloud is a platform I already have used extensively to keep track of music I listen to while working on the computer! My soundcloud link will have the best relaxed music around (Reposted on my page for ease of access). Guaranteed to help you to focus while on the computer.
Flicker is a platform I have never really used before. After looking around on there for a few minutes, I feel like I have been missing out! I’ll try to be constantly organizing my photos into albums from my recent trips! My sister and I love to travel together so this is a great way for us to share our experiences with everyone!
Lastly, we have the infamous Youtube. I haven’t really decided how to take on this platform as there are so many different styles on it. For now, I have linked some of my favorite channels to watch on my “Featured Channels” section. Feel free to check them out as well as my “About ” section.
