From death by PowerPoint to engaging Captivate: Lessons learned when implementing specific design principles

646 views

Published on

Existing instructional materials often create a host of challenges for even the seasoned multimedia developer. In this case, the project involved taking a text-heavy PowerPoint presentation and converting it for use in a research study evaluating the design principles of modality and redundancy. From storyboard concept to Captivate project, lessons learned included how to incorporate animation, narration, and text in varying degrees without compromising the quality of the design.
Presentation at #AECT13.

  • Paramedic driver safety training course for National EMS in Conyers and Athens, GA
  • Original training design consisted of more than 5 PowerPoint slides with only one visual; a video clip on rollover danger
  • Existing content was outlined and marked up with comments to brainstorm potential multimedia to find or create
  • I served as the instructional designer and multimedia developer. The software I used included PowerPoint, Word, iMovie, Photoshop, and Captivate. I also had access to a paramedic as the SME.
