For any project there are many moving parts. To get from a conversation and an idea to a completed project takes good design, implementation and evaluation among other things. Below are some examples of ‘moving parts’ that can get you idea to product.

 

Storyboard

A picture is worth a thousand words, so creating a storyboard to visualize processes is a vital tool in the design of learning.  Click here to see a pictorial of the definition of a blog created in Multimedia Design course EIDT 6120.

 

Animation

Movement of any sorts catches the eye and stimulates like static images can’t, The use of an avatar can be an inventive way of including an ‘instructor’ in an online class if the design warrants.  This is particularly useful for a short training in presentation software.  Meet ‘DiDi’ here.  I created this avatar when I originally set up this site as a blog.  It was my first ‘post’ and still resides on the thoughts page under Blogs.

 

Implementation and Evaluation

Implementation and evaluation are two critical are two critical steps in any instructional design.   The more attention paid to the former should result in good marks on the latter.  Here is an example of a guide for the training ‘How to Use Your iPhone” created in Advanced Instructional Design course EIDT 6110.

 

Communication

In any relationship communication is key.  The best way to ensure a project stays on task is to create a communication log that identifies the key players on a project and when and how information is to be disseminated to the team. Here is a communication log that shows critical information necessary to stay on track created for Project Management course EDUC 6145,
