    • Question 1What type of eLearning course do youwant? @dtauer :: @easelsolutions :: #astdtcc2012
    • Type of course Video Demonstration • Record your screen, publish a video, no interaction Interactive Demonstration/Simulation • Screen recording, but with interactivity • “Slides” between sections of screen recording Scenario-based Training • Teaching soft-skills with lots of branching @dtauer :: @easelsolutions :: #astdtcc2012
    • Question 2Who is your target audience? @dtauer :: @easelsolutions :: #astdtcc2012
    • Audience Platforms • Web, mobile, desktop Design Considerations • Recording Dimensions (i.e. 800x600) • Size of UI controls (bigger buttons for mobile) • Themes Accessibility Requirements • Audio, Text-to-voice, Captions, etc. @dtauer :: @easelsolutions :: #astdtcc2012
