Thanks for the awesome write-up of ds106 here, it is a really fun class. Tim Owens deserves full credit for making the Daily Create site a reality, and it is all done with freely available WordPress plugins, you can see the details here

Also, Martha Burtis’s work with the ds106 assignment repository is amazing. It’s a space where students submit assignments and other people in the class can do them. Take for example the fat Cat visual assignment which a student at UMW submitted and people all over the world completed, pretty crazy:

One thing you might notice is not only the list of 23 people who did that particular assignment, but also the 3 or 4 tutorials people submitted to help others complete it. What happens with ds106 is the students not only help build not the community of the class, but the class itself. It is like building an airplane while flying in it!
