Learn how to use the Sketch application to create handouts, worksheets, and grading rubrics, and see how to save your designs as reusable templates.
- As someone who designs curriculum, teaches, or works with course content, do you have your go-to documents for forms, quiz templates, or grading rubrics? Wouldn't it be great if there were an app that not only allowed you to centralize all of your templates, but also made it super easy to design great looking graphics, handouts, and instructional materials? Well, the good news is that there finally is such an app. It's called Sketch, and it's available for Mac. Hi, my name is John-Paul Ballard. I've been designing instruction with technology for about 15 years, and through my experience, I've acquired a skillset that specializes in finding and leveraging technology that works well in the education market.
In this course, I will show you how to organize and create great looking templates for your curriculum. Also, you'll see how to use a sketch workflow and design handouts and infographics. So, let's get started using Sketch for instructional design.
In this course, John-Paul Ballard shows you how Sketch fits into your curriculum design workflow. He demonstrates how to use the design features to make icons, shapes, and tables. Then, he takes you right into practical uses, showing you how to make a rubric, a syllabus, a handout, and how to save these as reusable templates. He also discusses how layout and intuitive design improves the user experience for your learners and is complementary to an instructional systems design workflow.
