DS106 Advice Post

Before taking this class you need to understand that although it is an online class and it has a lot of fun and creative components it is extremely time consuming. You must dedicate around 4-6 hours a week to completing the various assignments due at the end of every week. On top of that for me personally a lot of the material was new to me. This added another huge time component for me because I had to do a lot of research and guess and check work for how to complete different assignments before I even started completing the work itself.

Although it was a big time commitment the work is fun, creative, and very different from the work you complete in a normal class making it more enjoyable to do. I really loved how much material this class covered in regards to learning how to use a variety of media and editing techniques. I was forced out of my comfort zone to use so many different tools and now I know how to use them confidently.

I highly recommend this class for anyone who wants to sharpen or even begin to work on increasing their skills within the multi-media world.

Good Luck!!

P.S Do not procrastinate trust me!!!!
