The lab consists of a provided PDF handout to which a PSD
template is attached. The students are instructed to identify three field of
study examples that they find inspirational to their work.
The students are shown how to find large “free to use and
modify” examples via Google’s search engine. The student places the example in
the space provided in the PSD template. The next step for the student is to up
the image to kuler.adobe.com and to use its color generator to create a color
theme. Kuler is an awesome resource that I use outside of teaching in my
professional role as an illustrator and graphic designer but when uploading an
image its auto feature often jumps to irrelevant areas of the picture which
works out from an instructional point view because it forces the student to
think about what color is important and what is not then manually adjust the
theme. After creating the color theme the student downloads the .ase and loads
it into PS’s swatches. Then using the... Read More

One of the unique features of this course is that we're building the modules around existingOpen Educational Resources. Instead of creating our own lectures videos, we're curating the best from the open web, and we'd like to invite you to help us by contributing your discoveries to our growing list. We ask that anything you add be tagged with the appropriate module/week number (see below) as well as any relevant descriptive terms.

This is an interactive sheet of directions for students to create a website in Muse and use a Dropbox Public folder as the server. It is a great work-around for students who cannot afford website hosting, and it is a great introduction to Muse.
There are no directions on how to use Muse. I teach InDesign before I teach Muse. Muse is very similar to InDesign, so the transition is not too difficult. I demonstrate Muse and then direct my students to seek out videos on tv.adobe.com. The sheet contains assignment requirements, suggestions for content, and how to publish using Dropbox.
Also included is a rubric for the project.
Finally, a quick, free solution for students to publish websites. In the past, their websites were never "live"- now that will change, and I am certain that their enthusiasm will change, too. I am collaborating with core subject teachers to have my students do one of the research projects as a website instead of a typed paper!

Nine revealing pieces compiled in a poster grid where the student/designer visually reveals what they want another to know about them.
A great project for an entire grading period. Each piece can be for a grade and then one for the whole.
Students can present their projects to whole class which allows for them to get to know each other better.
Requires research into things like professions or heritage. Uses photography and photo manipulation.
Great end of school project when skills are developed and attention spans are short - focusing on themselves is priceless!

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.
