Memes: a media element spread on the internet, altered by others, and added to the internet’s dispersed collections.
They are fun, often humorous, and sometimes satirical. They can be informative. Dogtrax [ Kevin Hodgson] invites us to continue the #clmooc tradition of memes this year. So if a phrase captures your attention, let us know by choosing a meme image to fit. Create it, and spread the Meme Magic.
When Corinne Thomsen shared her lovely drawing, I immediately thought: Meme Magic!
So I asked her permission and began a remix. I opened my free app, Sketchbook Express, and began the process of remixing and adapting her fun image. I downloaded her image and inserted it into Sketchbook Express, which allows me to fill, draw, layer, and add text.
I first made a blank template for all of us to use. So download this image [right or control click and Save Image As] and create your own. I made it square [ 500 x 500 pixels ] because some meme generators require square images; adapt as you need to. It does allow for adding information on the white right side.
So, Welcome to #clmooc

Wow–you’re getting a total jumpstart on our Week 2 Make, which will focus on memes!
Who new? I just remembered all the memes from last year. Very fun, and look forward to this year’s meme frenzy. Thanks for taking it on!
Great way to show how memes can be made. (and more alliteration here than you can throw a stick at!)
Thanks, Kevin. Very fun, and I learned from the master!
