My Story: Story Telling using Adobe Photoshop, Premiere Elements, Presenter and captivate with Success

Posted on Mar 25, 2015 by Shanlee Liu Last Activity on Mar 30, 2015

A professional development plan for educators, staff and administrators was designed with a month long flipped on-lined training for participants to learn essential skills and functionality necessary on their own pace in order to advance to the 3 hours face to face workshop session. At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to create a lesson plan template and post a link to their digital media product. This is a work in progress. Your suggestion will make it better. Thank you so much in advance.

Posted on Mar 23, 2015 by Adam Corkett Last Activity on Mar 28, 2015

Pencil ToolPen ToolSelection and Sub-Select ToolsMotion TweenBone ToolClassic TweenMotion PathGradient Fills This is recorded just using demo mode for speed, so there is no mouse hinting thrown in on this series. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLoVjYC0dzcXAaf7vkkb7zjYTsZiXPY5Jt - Link to playlist as EDEX isn't liking the multiple videos at the moment.

Social Media Templates for Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign

Posted on Mar 18, 2015 by Tanya Hopper Last Activity on Mar 19, 2015

These are template files for the most common social media platforms for profiles, covers, banners, posts, and backgrounds. Posts are named AdBlanks because I primarily use them for creating ads for the content I create.  These really make life easier when you have 20+ walls, circles, and tweeters to manage :) I also have these for Quark. If you would like them please ask, and I will send them to you.

Publish Flash content on multiple platforms

Posted on Mar 7, 2015 by Joseph Labrecque Last Activity on Mar 28, 2015

Flash Professional CC lets you create animations for virtually any use case, device, browser, or platform. Natively author and publish your content to various formats using the tools and interface you already know. I have recorded – and Adobe has published – a set of video tutorials to spread awareness of Flash Professional CC as a platform agnostic creative animation and asset generation tool. Not only is this messaging important for creatives looking for a solid solution for targeting HTML5 Canvas, WebGL, and an array of custom platforms like Away3D and GAF… but is also beneficial to getting people to understand what a great platform exists within the Adobe runtimes; Flash Player and AIR! No matter what the target – Flash Professional is a wonderfully expressive tool and Adobe is committed to enhancing the application to make it more useful for an ever-expanding set of creative designers, developers, animators, and more.

Learn to use the Pen Tool

Posted on Mar 5, 2015 by Kimberly Larson Last Activity on Mar 28, 2015

When I teach Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator to students they seem to have a difficult time learning how to use the Pen Tool. A few month back I saw a post on social media about a web game that someone came up with to teach / learn to use the pen tool. I quickly introduced it to my students and they loved it. Even today, I catch students playing the game. If you have you really should check it out! http://bezier.method.ac/ Enjoy!

Tables in Adobe Muse

Posted on Mar 3, 2015 by Matthijs Clasener Last Activity on Mar 3, 2015

Ever wondered how to bring a table into your awesome Adobe Muse project? That's kind of hard because Adobe Muse doesn't support that function (at this moment). So you'll need to buy a widget or find a work around. This work around will be a huge timesaver for working with tables inside of your favorite webdesign tool!

Change the World in Two Weeks

Posted on Mar 2, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Mar 2, 2015

I pitched a blue sky project to my students today (March 2). On Friday, March 13, they'll deliver their plan/artifact/evidence of what/how/why they did/will continue to do to "make the world a better place." On Monday, March 16, they'll each present their results to their peers. They may work alone or collaboratively but each must document the journey on his/her blog. The project intro is in the video (below). I also linked to this scene from Pay It Forward in the quest.  Personal shocker: Less that 10% of the students have seen Pay It Forward. The kids responded enthusiastically to the challenge and the classroom was abuzz with possibilities. It's going to be an interesting two weeks.

Shape of Design

Posted on Feb 28, 2015 by Aalia Rahman Last Activity on Mar 1, 2015

The Shape of Design by Frank Chimero is a free odd little design ebook. Instead of talking about typography, grids, or logos, it focuses on storytelling, co-dependency, and craft. It tries to supplement the abundance of technical talk and how-to elsewhere by elevating why great work is done.  Shape is a book about objectives, and it zooms out to answer a couple big questions: How does it feel to make things for other people? And how can we do so in a meaningful, engaged way? -I do not own rights to this book. The description was taken from the book itself. You may read the book online, download the book or order a print.-

Lead By Example

Posted on Feb 27, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Feb 27, 2015

When we returned from winter break on January 5th I challenged my students to step out of their comfort zone and step up the creative effort. I felt the best way to make the challenge stick was to accept it myself so on the 4th I recorded a few videos, uploaded them to a YouTube playlist, and announced on the 5th that I'd add to the playlist every school day from that point forward. Crazy, eh? Teachers, like students, need a challenge. This is day 33 of a new series of Mac Lab videos (not counting finals and the first day of semester 2) and I'm currently on a 33 day hitting streak with 92 videos in the playlist. These tutorials aren't intended to be refined or polished (and they're not). They're intended to be a daily extemporaneous exercise—though subject to rerecording when I become especially maladroit (which happens all too often). The idea harkens back to the spirit of Confessions of a Video Tutorial Junkie. But because not enough kids were embracing the challenge,... Read More
