How might we shoot, edit and share better instructional video? From video lectures to oral history projects, so called “talking head” or “instructional” video clips can make a great addition to your teaching practice. But instructional video can be tricky to get right. What are your tips for other educators who are just getting started? Include links to good examples in your response if you can!

Most design students learn the basic rules of composition early on in their education. But do the rules still apply today? If so, which are most important to follow, and which might be bent or broken in the name of creativity? Is it worth even teaching the rules anymore?

HI Everyone, I was reading up on some trends and wanted to ask your best advice, is Adobe Illustrator a good alternative to using AutoCAD or TurboCAD to create blue prints? I know you can use Illustrator for 3D and 2D rendering of images, but wanted to verify with the "users" blue prints could be created? All the best, Jenn

Adobe Photoshop has the most tools to manipulate photographs and make them the highest quality. You will have to have a tutorial on Adobe Photoshop computer system software to learn everything about editing, but you will find that when you have the knowledge the program is the most easy to use. You can really publish pictures from negatives, from cameras, and from scanners. You will be able to edit out those little scratches or lint that were on the video camera lens to make the picture seem best. You can a... Read More

What is the best way to QA a large question pool?

I'm looking for suggestions from the community on how to best QA a large pool, or several large pools of questions in my captivate courses.  It's not like you can take the course a million times until you've achieved all possible outcomes.  How is everyone else doing this?  I've been printing to PDF or WORD and sending to the QA team - as it shows all the questions in all the pools, but is there a better way?

Good Afternoon everyone, I have been tasked by my job to take the lead on testing the iPad for the Digital Multimedia Course at my school. I have a few design apps on this, but I assume some of you are using this at your school and have been for awhile. I am calling on you for assistance in every area of this.  Some example questions: Is there an app that you use to display a presentation so that it shows up on all devices at the same time? I know about the Adobe Content Viewer, but are there others... Read More

Hi all, I teach computer science in the Netherlands to 15-year-old children and up. The pupils are highschool level and above and are able to read and understand English. So my question is: How do I start with children that have not done anything in Photoshop before? Thanks, Jack

I'm at the end of the school year, marking the last assignments and looking through course evaluations. I read a comment from a student saying they were expecting more typography… and I wonder what they mean and how I could be clearer. I guess it is a bit like Karate Kid where the kid comes to the master to learn to fight and is given chores, the chores prepares his body to defend agains onslaught, strengthens his muscles and prepares him… but he does not reflect over that it is the tedious ch...

Beyond passive - Beyond repurposing - Moving away from slides to interaction and innovation

As educators we are likely to have created a favorite learning aid. How do we use Adobe tools to transform those learning aids into interactive learning experiences? More than this, how do we help ourselves and other educators avoid simply "repurposing" things such as slides and handouts? We have all seen it done. "Repurposed", boring handouts, smashed into an Adobe tool such as Captivate or Acrobat...but the handout just sits there doing nothing! How do you inspire your educators to mak... Read More

Hello there.  We've been creating digital stories throughout various courses at the college I work at for about a year now.  We are considering switching to using the Adobe Mobile Apps like Slate and Voice to do this now.  My main question, or concern, is whether or not there is a way to publish these stories into a searchable database just for our college.  From my understanding, currently we can only publish to the Adobe gallery and to social media via a unique url.  Is there any...

Being part of an IB school, gratitude and appreciation are value I want to instill in my students.  I have my students discuss with their group what they are grateful.  I then randomly select and take volunteers to share while being recorded on adobe voice.  Later in the class during independent work time, I have the students select an Icon that seems to fit their message.  This is all done on my iPAD since we do not have a class set.   At the end of the period I project the "...

I am doing my Phd in Education and looking at the value of Communities of Practice to support early career secondary teachers. I am wondering if anyone in this Adobe community might be able to assist me, either by completing the survey yourself (if you are in the first 5 years of teaching secondary) or sharing it with ECTs you know.  I hope the results of my research will make a difference for ECTs in providing a more supportive environment for them to flourish in https://usqadfi.au1.qualtrics....

This article contains the essence of c.school—something my students and I have been working on for years. Our principal has embraced this vision and all staff have her explicit permission to implement (or not) a customized version of c.school in their learning environments at our public high school in the fall. I'm sharing this in the hope that others might find something of value. Please feel free to express contrary views. #RethinkHighSchool and #CreateEDU anew.

I am interested in flipping some of my elementary/middle school technology content.  I teach business and computers in grades 1-12.  I am considering flipping some of my content - in particular tutorials that teach students about the various tools and techniques in many Adobe applications.   In our district, I know that all students have internet access at home, so it is plausible that the flipped learning model would work for certain types of instruction.  There are so many high qualit...
