How to: Google draw something

The tutorial that I will be doing is for the assignment Google Draw Something. This one was fun and very easy to do!

Step 1: Go to the website: https://quickdraw.withgoogle.com/

This is what the beginning screen will look like.

Step 2: Simply click the Let’s Draw button on the screen. A big yellow screen will pop up. It will tell you what you are going to draw in 20 seconds.

Step 3: Before you you click “Got it!” you need to understand the point of the game. You will draw what object/person/place/etc. that google says. You only have 20 seconds to get Google to guess what you are drawing.

Step 4: After you play the rounds, a screen will pop up showing all the pictures you drew. You can share it, or click play again.

That’s all for this Tutorial! I hope it helped so you can play this game and have fun as well!!! 🙂

Ebay through time

This assignment was to look at how a website has changed over time. Take a look at eBay since 1999 (the year I was born)

1999:

2001:

2004:

2007:

2010:

2014:

2018:

As you can see, Ebay has changed quite a bit over time for the last 19 years. The amount of ads on the eBay page has increased greatly. The colors and eye-catching parts of the website also had increased. There is also less reading on the page as time went on which was very strange.

 

Best Digital Tool for UMW

This is the absolute best tool that I know how to use. It is called Rate my Professor. This incredible website/tool can show you ratings of professors that you are thinking about taking a class from.

You simply go to http://www.ratemyprofessors.com. You do not need an account in order to check professors, but you do need one if you would like to rate a professor. Here are the steps to finding your professor:

  1. Go onto the website above
  2. Click “Find a Professor”
  3. Type in your school (for us, University of Mary Washington)
  4. Then right under it, type the last name of the professor for which you would like to know about
  5. Scroll down and you will see the ratings for the professor.
  6. If you look in the top left corner of each rating, you can see what class number it is for

This is the best website when making your schedule. I hope it helped!!!

DS106 Haunted

My first assignment from the assignment bank was ghosts of ds106 past. I went onto Instagram and typed in #ds106 and found someone that put a reflection of an object into an eyeball. I thought that would be fun to do, so I tried it out myself!

It was harder than I thought it would be, so I put a little heart into the black part of the eye.
