Progress Report for TOC Response

Well I am going through the process of gathering material for my response to TOC this week. I didn’t have the greatest success using the databases provided by Marylhurst through the Shoen Library site, but I was able to find some good articles through Google Scholar. There were some materials that would have been useful through interlibrary loan through Marylhurst, but due to the length of this assignment, I didn’t have time to wait for these materials to arrive. I just figured out how to capture video from the screen of my wife’s iPad, so I am hoping that I will be able to put together something that is at least visually interesting for this project.

How are things going for everyone else? Are you all going to use Adobe Voice to put your project together? I have been talking to Timothy Merritt and looking at some of the things he has done for New Media classes at Marylhurst. He has been using iMovie. I keep thinking that I am going to stick with voice and see what I can make with that. I just wish that there was an Android version so I could be doing this on a more familiar Android interface.

I’m looking forward to seeing what all of you create for this assignment.

    You’re so good at keeping a blog. I’m so lost on how to document my progress on Tumblr that I may borrow your wordpress idea…I’ve never used Tumblr before and last term was the first time I’ve ever used Twitter. The video response is really intimidating for me too….I’ve never Never done anything like this before….definitely challenging me. Keep up the good work!

    Wow, thank you so much, Mandy. That really means a lot to me. I definitely recommend the blog idea. I really like using Tumblr and Twitter but I also like having a place where everything kind of gets born out of. If you have any questions about setting up a blog, let me know. I hope that the anxiety over the video presentation is lowering. I am about half way through mine and as I go I find myself getting more and more into it. I can’t wait to see how everyone’s presentations turn out.
