From Flying Bullets to Instructional Animations with Diane Elkins
Flying bullets were the height of fashion ... in 1997. And yet still they persist in some corporate learning, both in the classroom and online. So why is this much-maligned presentation technique still popular?
Come to this free event and join Diane Elkins, Artisan E-Learning, as she presents a case study of how an American Red Cross Disaster Services course moved from slides and slides of bullets to useful, engaging instructional animations. You’ll look at before-and-after slides that illustrate the transformation from text bullets to instructional animations. But more importantly, you’ll learn about some of the specific design techniques used in that transformation—techniques you can use yourself, even if you aren’t a graphic artist. Come see this DemoFest 2012 award-winning course!
In this session, you will learn:
• What the research says about using text, graphics, and animations
• How to analyze text-based content and determine the best visual approach
• When and how to apply instructional animations
• Common design pitfalls to avoid
Networking & food! Come join us!
