Telling Stories in Photos

In doing ds106 Daily Creates you’ve already been using photography and drawing skills, plus you’ve had some practice on doing visual stories from our introduction to storytelling. In this week we go a bit deeper and give you the opportunity to practice telling stories in primarily visual form. Now it’s time go from someone who maybe takes a lot of snapshots to one who thinks more about composition, framing, and being more intentional with your photo making. Even if you are an accomplished photographer, it is always something you can can better at by honing skills or trying new approaches.

This will also be the first week most of our work comes from the ds106 Assignment Collection – make sure that you are writing up your assignments to meet the   criteria for writing up your digital assignments.

Domain Verification is a MUST or Your Domain will be Suspended

As part of your activity in this class, you recently registered a domain through UMW’s Domain of One’s Own project. All domains registered are required by ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) to be verified within two weeks of registration. Verification is completed by clicking on a link that is emailed to you.

 

You should have received an email immediately after registering your domain. If you know you completed yourdomain verification, then you are done! However, if you don’t remember doing this, please refer to this article: http://docs.umwdtlt.org/umw-domains/domain-verification/ which provides information about where you might find the email, what the subject will likely be, and how to resend it to yourself. In addition, the staff of Teaching & Learning Technologies is resending domain verification emails to all unverified domains on Friday, September 4th.

 

If you believe you’ve never received this email, and you can’t seem to resend it to yourself, please contact Martha Burtis at mburtis@umw.edu.

 

If you do not verify your domain within 2 weeks of registering it, it will be suspended. Suspension does not mean that your site or work are actually deleted or removed; they simply will be come unavailable until you complete the verification process. Unfortunately, no one can complete domain verification on your behalf, so it is critical that you do it yourself.
