Vyond: Explain Complex Ideas With Animation
Date Thursday, Nov 28 Time – Room Pavillon Theatre 2
Driven by an always-on, mobile culture, learners today have an “instant gratification” mindset and are easily distracted by email notifications, text message buzzes, and instant messages. For instructional designers this means every second counts when fighting for attention, focus, and retention. How do you cope with everyday distractions and deliver engaging content, especially when that content is complex (or worse, dry and unexciting)? With animated video. But what if you don’t have extensive knowledge of animation design? Fear not…with a little bit of creativity, you too can create fun and engaging animated videos.
