So You’re Thinking of Taking DS106?

The benefit of taking online classes is that you can generally work them around your schedule. This is especially true for a class like this one where everyone has the same standard due date each week. If you have a lot of free time in the beginning of one week and a lot at the end of another, you can switch things up as long as everything is completed by the deadline.

The class is a lot of work. You will be creating multiple media assignments each week, but it won’t necessarily feel like work. While I will admit that some weeks have been a struggle, there are other weeks where I am really excited about creating an assignment and seeing its end result. So will you should be prepared for a fair amount of work, don’t expect it to be boring. You get to shape assignments tot your own liking; make it something you will enjoy doing.

Learn how to operate your website. This wasn’t a problem for me because I have had a lot of experience with WordPress, but it’s important to know how to work and create on your site to make your blog as useful as possible.

I wish I known how many different softwares we would be using so that I had more time to find some for my computer. I found that certain softwares were not very compatible with my laptop so I would have to install and uninstall programs until I found that worked and that could take a bit of time.

I was worried about this class because I am a senior with an 18 credit course load and I wasn’t sure how I would manage my time for this class. However, it ended up being one of my more enjoyable classes. It was interesting working with different types of media and, while I liked some more than other, it was a learning experience that I hope I will be able to apply in the future.
