  • To make a podcast, you need:-Computer-Microphone. Some computers (newer laptops) may have built-in microphones, and there are other inexpensive options… more on next slide-Recording Software. I’m going to demonstrate Audacity, because it is free and cross-platform, works on Mac and PC.-Access to the Internet. You will need access to the Internet in order to make your podcast accessible to others. Internet, not necessarily server. We will be using Podbean, which is a free podcast hosting service. It also creates an RSS feed for you.
  • More mic options listed on the how-to handout.
  • Control panel, mouse, pointer options, motion
  • Bullet points provided by participants in the PNC/MLA class on 10/18/09
  • Bullet points provided by participants in the PNC/MLA class on 10/18/09
  • Bullet points provided by participants in the PNC/MLA class on 10/18/09
  • A detailed checklist for instructional design projects
  • Old Taxonomy used nouns – Knowledge on low end and Synthesis on high endThis one uses verbs and notably adds “create” as the highest-order thinking skillUnder each main verb are some other verbs you can use to write meaningful, measurable learning objectives. For example – if you want the people you watch your tutorial to be able to apply what they learn, you might use the verbs implement, execute, use and so on.New article addresses the new language of social media (such as “tweet”) and where those types of skills fit in the taxonomy.
  • Get the whole team involved… the writer, the one with the radio voice, the one who likes to tinker with design. Share the labor and take advantage of individuals’ strengths.
  • Increase user engagement byUpping the entertainment factorIncluding required users actions and quizzes within the tutorial
  • How do they feel about the fact this instruction exists? Are they psyched about it? Is the learning objective something that’s important to them? Overall design and aesthetics issues.Could be measured with pre-test/post-testAre they able to apply what they learned in a real-life situation? Does it “stick”?
  • Various storyboarding templates online & available for downloadCan also create 3 blank .ppt slides and print as handoutPost-its are another option
