Good afternoon storytellers!
Well you did it, you’re in the home stretch! One more week to go. This week is much different than what you’ve experienced in the last 7 weeks. In the coming days you will be putting together your final portfolio projects. That means no more ds106 assignments, no more critiques, no more daily creates (although you are always welcome to create if you like). Remi has posted details of what your portfolio should include on Canvas. Make sure to read it, maybe a few times.
There are many different tools available to create your final project. One popular one last year was Storify. Myself, I created a video (you can view it here), because I enjoy video editing so much. A simple Google search should net you some great tools you can use if Storify doesn’t interest you. A simple tip for your hypothesis annotations. When you log into hypothesis through their website, click on your name in the top right corner and you will be taken to your “stream”. This is an easier way to search for your annotations instead of having to comb through all the readings and trying to remember who’s reading response you commented on.
As you’re putting together your portfolios it might be tempting to only include the cream of the crop. Although, we’re happy to see all of your best projects, we are also looking for improvement and growth. Don’t be afraid to include some of the parts of the course where you were challenged. I’m looking forward to seeing what you produce!
As always, if you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
