Join Renaldo Lawrence for an in-depth discussion in this video Collecting other assets, part of Teaching Techniques: Creating Multimedia Learning.
- When I'm working with teachers I try to make sure…that I have everything I need from them…before I start the developmental process.…Those items usually include PowerPoint presentations,…recorded audio files, videos, images,…Photoshop files, Illustrator files, prototype drawings,…software, a folder structure setup,…an iPad to test the app, an Adobe account,…and a YouTube channel and a backup device.…Whew.…
Now I know how little time teachers have…and I don't want to constantly ask them for assets…so one of the things we do is to create a list…of all the assets and course materials…we'll need to ensure that I have all that's…required for me to complete and test the project.…Examine your prototype drawing to see…all of the elements that you will need assets for.…You might need graphics for icons…or buttons, instructional text, or sound effects.…Make your asset list and then collect each item.…
Teachers might have some of this content already created…that they use in their lesson plans.…If not, you have to either create the content yourself…
Elearning expert Renaldo Lawrence takes a typical lecture-style lesson and breaks down which parts can be transformed into a multimedia project.
