All About A Cool Tool

This assignment worth 3.5 stars required me to “find a cool, easy to use digital tool online!” and write a brief tutorial on how to use it.

Today’s tutorial will be on how to use a YouTube to MP3 converter. I have found this useful in many different assignments, specifically audio assignments. Lets get started!


First, search for  audio that you want to use from YouTube.

Next, select the video you want to use. This step is the most important.

From here, you need to copy the URL. In a new tab, open a YouTube to MP3 converter.  You can find tons of these on Google. This is the one I like to use.

Now, paste the URL from the video into the text box above where it says ‘Convert Video’.

After you’ve put the video URL in the box, hit ‘Convert Video’. This is what you should see.

Almost done! Select “Download” under the video information.

Once that’s done, you’ll have the video downloaded onto your desktop and from there you can do whatever you need with it. You can save it to use in other computer programs or to listen to it!

 

 

 

 

Storytelling within the Web

The IMBD page for The Notebook with a slightly different description.


The assignment had us change something about a preexisting web page to tell a story. I decided to change in IMBD page because it gives the description of a movie so I wanted to change it into my own story. Using X-Ray Goggles, I clicked the portion of text that I wanted to change then simply replaced the words that were there with what I wanted to say.

Here is the original version of the page.

 

Pack your bags, we’re taking a trip!

This assignment was really simple but I had a lot of fun doing it. For 3.5 stars, the assignment required me to create a Pinterest board and pin to it all things that reflected my dream vacation(s).

The pins on my vacation board range from Disney World to climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to road-tripping across the United States. I know it’s only a matter of time before I make these dreams into realities. Traveling has always been something I’ve been interested in and I do plan to actually take all the trips I’ve pinned to my Pinterest board.

Some of the specific posts on my Pinterest are:

Travel guides for Disney World which is at the top of my list of dream vacations.

A guide on how to travel across the United States without spending a lot of money.

And lastly, a list of parks in Canada that are great vacation spots. I included this one because my dream is to travel outside the country and I figured it’d be start in the country closest to home, our neighbor to the north, Canada.
