LOEX2008: From Learning Objectives to Multimedia Tutorials

Posted by comartslibrarian on May 3, 2008

Wink is very easy, a shareware application for creating screencasts. Only records when you “do something” so you can think before your next action. Flash gives you a lot more features and can add interactions, such as quizzes. Or a drag-and-drop to identify different sections of a citation.

Finding images for tutorials

Another great resource to view other tutorials (HTML and Flash-based): PRIMO Database by ALA. This is a peer-reviewed listing of instructional materials developed by librarians.

If you use mouseovers on a screen, this can be “hidden information” so you should put symbols wherever a hotspot is located.

Programming Flash tutorials to collect assessment scores has been difficult for them, so they will use Blackboard instead to record these results.
