Students will prepare slide presentation about color theory (work in team 3-4) using Adobe Spark or any relevent online presentations. Students need to understand about color palettes, color schemes such as monochromatic, analogous, complementary, tint and shade etc.

Can someone help me with this? I have always believed - and it seems to play out in application - that when you adjust the Paths in the Advanced controls dialog box that the higher the number of paths the tighter the fit. However recently I saw this on Adobe's Help site: Advanced controls Fine-tune your tracing result using advanced options in the Image Trace options. Paths Controls the distance between the traced shape and the original pixel shape. Lower values create a tighter path fitting; higher... Read More

Hi everyone! Whilst I have enjoyed the courses and workshops the Education Exchange has put out over the years, I was wondering if there will be any courses that look at more advanced video editing and/or production. Cheers Matthew Goodwin

I have a huge amount of resources that I wish to share with all of you. However, slight dilemma. A majority of these have been modified from various sources from the Internet (mostly changes in images or grammar [OMG the grammar!]I acknowledge the author on the cover page of course but unsure of whether I can share these revamped tutorials, etc?The originals are free and online!? Do you think I would be breaching the owner's copyright/any copyrights by sharing these resources? Thank you for your help.

I've created 3 posters for a bulletin board on using math in relation to basketball. One poster is on geometry, and the other two are on using math in the career fields of statistics and engineering. I'd like to create more posters on algebra, physics, construction, and electronics or software development. (For electronics/software, I'd like to find some information on the new gadgets or technology that is used to improve player fitness, muscle memory, etc) Unfortunately, it takes longer to research con...

I have a good idea what I plan on doing but I was curious to see if anyone else has some materials they would like to share!

Hi All. I teach graphic design at Tyler School of Art and Architecture, Temple University. One of the assignments we have been giving for years is to find a brand that needs a redesign and redesign it. The students don't always reach out to the companies, but for years it wasn't an issue. We looked at it as fair use since they were using the name and sometimes images for learning purposes but completely rebranding everything. Things are tricky now with online portfolios, Behance and Instagram, now it's not... Read More

As time has passed, and especially since the second half of the twentieth century, countries have increasingly become globalized, integrating with the world regardless of political, cultural or geographic borders. Brands and logos started traveling around the globe, influencing the color perception of different cultures. What impact can... Read More

I can see that there is improvements in Animate and how we import them into After Effects for post processing tasks. Now, Animate streamlines this workflow by providing a plug-in for After Effects. we can import Animate files into After Effects to composite them with a video or render them as video with more creative effects.

What are some resources that you use to teach students about accessibility? Unfortunately and surprisingly, Adobe CC InDesign Classroom in a Book includes nothing to help me teach students about accessibility. I use Adobe's Website about InDesign Accessibility and's Creating Accessible Documents Page I just created today for students about InDesign Accessibility

One of my top teaching philosophies is: Learn something, Use something, and then Teach it to others. I have started to do this with students, and it has been working out great. I first teach the students about the three ways to create in Spark. Then I have them do both group and individual projects. The last step is to have then teach their parents at least one part of Spark and then talk about the experience in class. Some of the stories have been great.

I'm looking for a digital program or app that I can use to share digital lesson plans with my students. I've tried quite a few but I'm just not happy with any of them because they either have limitations in what I can post, files sizes limits, brings students outside of the site to view items, etc. I'm looking for somewhere that I can house you tube links, webpages, google documents, and student examples.

Infographics seems like a great way to develop informative and visually appealing educational materials that can both teach students as well as challenge them. And InDesign is an intuitive and easy way to create an infographic. In my field of Political Science (university level), infographics can be used to display basic information such as the types (with examples) of Presidential powers to more complex issues like the Presidential Selection process.

What are things that will put them a step above? What are most recent grads missing? Would love to... Read More

For an undergraduate-level college course on typography, would you recommend teaching Illustrator or InDesign to the students? I only have enough class time for one of them in addition to the rest of the typography-specific instruction that I want to include. InDesign is great for teaching page layout while Illustrator is great for teaching typographic composition and typeface design. I would appreciate the thoughts of other educators on the topic as I develop my curriculum.

I'm currently working on a learning and teaching event poster on VR and empathy - both in designing the experience with empathy for the user and to have empathy as a learning outcome. I thought I'd start a discussion on the impact of these immersive technologies on learning. First, to define the terms in basic terms VR - Virtual Reality - an immersive experience that is all in a computer simulated reality. AR - Augmented Reality - a live overlay of digital to a real-world environment. MR - Mixed Reality... Read More
