Retouching Your Images

Posted on Aug 27, 2014 by M. Chow Last Activity on Aug 27, 2014

Have you ever seen an amazing photo but could never figure out how it was taken? A good photographer can accomplish this. And if not, Photoshop has tools for correcting many kinds of imperfections, from smoothing pores and wrinkles to removing unsightly power lines. How about the pages of beauty magazines? Wow, those models have no imperfections! Or what about the cherish photos in our wallets of our loved ones—all leave the tale tell signs of cracks, rips, tears, and misshapen corners. Majority of the photos that you see, can be fixed with Photoshop. Although, this topic is taught in the advanced level of Photoshop, we will touch briefly what retouching can do.

Menu Layout Assessment Items

Posted on Aug 26, 2014 by Gale Bigbee Last Activity on Aug 28, 2014

This is a menu layout assignment I distribute to second semester Graphic Communications students at South Central College (SCC). I'm always working to develop objective grading rubrics on sometimes subjective attributes. Some of the Visual Design rubrics have been used and modified to fit particular assignments. I am constantly fine tuning the rubrics to try to be as objective as possible. At SCC, we have workflow software so all files get ripped through the software to ensure the integrity of file construction is present with all of the layouts for print. This assignment also shows some of those steps in a very simple format.

Top 5 InDesign shortcuts to share with your class

Posted on Aug 25, 2014 by Daniel Scott Last Activity on Aug 25, 2014

Hey everyone. I've created 5 Adobe InDesign shortcuts as both printable handouts that you can give to your students. The problem with getting shortcuts in class is that my delegates only remember a few. So we've made these with the help of my London based design friend Alex Mulder . This is a desktop wallpaper version too if you find they are helpful to remember new InDesign tips. I'd love to know if they are useful for you. Also let me know in the comments if there are other tips you think should be made into designs like these. Thanks everyone! Dan

Medieval Michelle

Posted on Aug 24, 2014 by Mavis McLean Last Activity on Aug 27, 2014

Choose an image of a contemporary celebrity or political figure and use Photoshop to manipulate the graphic, transporting your chosen subject to another era in time. Use the selection tools to select and move images, use the transform and crop tools to size of the image. Select a background layer to for your manipulated image.  I choose a picture of Michelle Obama for my final project. #PD editing images

Adobe Voice Planning Sheet

Posted on Aug 15, 2014 by Joel Aarons Last Activity on Aug 23, 2014

I find it useful in my class - since we have limited iPads - to have the students pre-plan their Stories. To this end, I created a planning sheet, that can be printed as many times as needed. The sheet contains space to plan two slides. Each plan for a slide includes space for: Notes (on what pictures/icons/captions are needed)Layout choiceScript for narrationRough sketch of the slide I find once the students have all this worked out, then the time needed to spend on the iPad is minimal and I can share it around to other students. I hope others find this useful.

Informal learning and identity formation in online social networks by Christine Greenhow* and Beth Robelia

Posted on Aug 7, 2014 by katherine Yamashita Last Activity on Aug 7, 2014

This review is from one of my students: Colin Couchman: I think that Greenhow & Robelia articulate quite well the issues inherent in negotiating identity politics in a social media age.  Within the article, they discuss issues of identity within social network sites and question aspects of digital citizenship, technology fluency, and the viability of such platforms within learning environments. This article could be of particular interest to those teaching within the secondary panel, higher education, school administrators, and/or management in higher education. Kathy's additional comments, I think this article is important as it looks at how extensive Social Media applications are in youth and young adult "real lives" and how excluded or restricted the use of these media in education. Fascinating findings worth the read for those who are interested in transformative curriculum development. Article Citation: Greenhow, Christine andRobelia, Beth(2009) 'Informal learning and...

Self Grading Quiz

Posted on Aug 5, 2014 by Jody Campbell Last Activity on Aug 22, 2014

I was asked by a number of members to share an example of one of my self grading interactive PDFs. So here is very basic version that you can modify for your own use.  I included a blank template that is secured with the exceptions being the ability to fill in fields and make comments. I set it up this way so the student can't reformat the quiz. I use to use MS Word but without fail I would quizzes back where the student would delete all the questions and just give me answers (sometimes I would just a single paragraph for a 20 question quiz!) or change the typefaces, etc.  To enter your own questions into this template go to properties and use the password  EDEX1 and then edit text under the tools option. I also included a graded example of the template and here you can see the text fields that the student uses to reply to a question are scrollable so if they need more room it does not reformat the whole quiz. So when I get a quiz back from a student I just check off the correct answers and... Read More
