Week 6: You Can Do This!

Week 6: You Can Do This!

Wow! What an awesome digital display from all of you over the last five weeks. This really is such a great course to show off your skills and I’m have been floored by the level of detail, the risk-taking designs, and the creativity that has been on display. Here’s a snapshot of some posts from this course that were memorable for me – it’s not too late to drop some comments and engage in conversations! (Side note: I created the layout with elink – I’m sorry about the advertising!)

Course 3 Project

As always, this week you have time to catch up on any missed posts and/or comments and get to work on your project. If you are stuck on the project please let me know so that I can help you with some ideas! I’m excited to see what you have all come up with – these projects are always a lot of fun.

Here’s what you should have done by the end of the week:

  • One blog post for each week of the course (five posts)
  • One additional blog post reflecting on your final project (for a total of 6 posts)
  • A final project embedded into your last blog post for Course 3
  • One comment for each week of the course (for a total of 5 comments)

All of these items should be listed on your grading spreadsheet so that I can give you feedback.

Course 4 begins on the 29th of October!
