Creating an Interactive DVD Menu

Posted on Mar 14, 2014 by Tony Bolder Last Activity on Mar 28, 2014

I've always felt that creating assignments for students requires a lot of thought in how the assignment is designed. Students need to become fully engaged with the assignment brief right from the first read. Hence, I now create fully interactive assignment briefs that allow students to continuously engage and update whenever they can. This I think keeps their interest up in the document, and hopefully promotes creativity. This assignment is based on the planning and creation of pre-production documents for an interactive DVD menu. The students have already completed an assignment on the theoretical aspects of digital interactive design. The final assignment will be the actual production of their designed interactive DVD menu.
