Posted on Apr 26, 2015 by Tim Kitchen Last Activity on Apr 27, 2015

This post features the slides used during Dr Tim Kitchen's webinar with Queensland educators during an One Channel session on Monday April 27, 2015 Having students produce portfolios of their best work for the purpose of assessment, reflection and presentation is well recognised as an important part of the learning process but managing portfolios is often difficult. This webinar demonstrates how Adobe Acrobat can be used as a very effective and easy to use digital portfolio tool. Acrobat is much more than a PDF reader and creator, it is a one stop document management tool that allows for multimedia integration and interactivity. This webinar looks at how to make the most of Acrobat with a focus on using it as a tool to produce powerful student ePortfolios.

PhoneGap Jumpstart

Posted on Apr 25, 2015 by Joseph Labrecque Last Activity on Apr 25, 2015

I’ve always found that getting started with PhoneGap if you hadn’t used it before (and sometimes even if you have) to be an exercise in frustration which even when it all goes well… takes some time and dedication.  Well now we have some really nice tools to make the whole process much, much nicer! This tutorial guides you through a workflow using the desktop app, Brackets, and the mobile app - much better :)

Making a crossfade video clip with Adobe Photoshop

Posted on Apr 24, 2015 by Colin Maxwell Last Activity on Apr 24, 2015

In this tutorial you will learn to take two photographs and combine them in Photoshop to create a short video clip with a fade effect between the two images.

Adobe DPS Curriculum - Unit 8 - Create an app and publish folios

Posted on Apr 23, 2015 by Adobe Education Last Activity on Apr 24, 2015

The focus of previous lessons has been on creating folio content. This is where most designers and production artists will spend most of their time. But a folio by itself isn’t very useful. A folio needs an app in which to reside. A folio will be “published” into an app. How to create an app and publish a folio is the focus of this lesson.  This is a lecture course. Because of the expense and complexity associated with getting developer accounts and certificates, these steps are best demonstrated and explained to students, rather than running a lab environment.  This is Unit 8 of the Adobe DPS Curriculum. Find the full curriculum syllabus here. For more resources for educators using Digital Publishing Suite in the classroom, check out the DPS for Educators portal.

Adobe DPS Curriculum - Introduction

Posted on Apr 23, 2015 by Adobe Education Last Activity on Apr 24, 2015

This is the Introduction to the Adobe DPS Curriculum. Find the full curriculum syllabus here.
