Using Photoshop to Enhance Your Video...After Effects Too!

Wednesday, March 23, 2011 01:00 PM

Having to capture eyeballs is a given in the world of e-Learning, because if you don’t get the learner’s eyes looking at the screen, you can’t train them. While our e-Learning productions aren’t going to look like Avatar, there are ways we can spice up our learning videos and even create “video” from scratch using some simple tools in Photoshop or After Effects — or both! Did you know that fairly complex animations are possible in Photoshop? After Effects is well known as an animation tool, but with Photoshop you can do almost as much, even create composite images. (If you don’t know what composite video is, you can come to this session and find out.)

Participants in this session will learn how easy it is to create motion graphics in both Photoshop and After Effects and apply them to a video project. With the software installed on your laptop, you’ll be able to follow along and get a “live” tutorial.

In this session, you will learn:
  • How to leverage Photoshop and After Effects to spice up your video
  • How to create simple animations
  • Why Photoshop and After Effects are such good tools to use
  • The things that make good eyeball-grabbing animation
  • What video compositing is and how to do it
Audience: Beginner-to-advanced designers, developers, managers, and others interested in enhancing their use of video. An understanding of layers in Photoshop will be helpful.

Implementing SME-created Video

Wednesday, March 23, 2011 01:00 PM

Video is an easy tool to use and it can be part of a SME's rapid development kit. Video communicates to learners by providing a connection with the viewer.

Participants in this case-study session will learn how JetBlue University is adding new tools to the SME Curriculum Developers. The tool is used to create two-to-five minute videos. You’ll see lessons learned and detailed steps taken to roll out video to SMEs.

In this session, you will learn:
  • The video tool selection process
  • An implementation plan to roll out video to SME Curriculum Developers
  • About supporting SMEs in video development
  • The lessons learned
Audience: Novice and intermediate designers, developers, managers, and others who want to understand how to implement video at their organization.

Restricted Travel, Not Restricted Training – Training By Videoconference

Friday, March 25, 2011 09:45 AM

Many of us face the challenge of providing training with less money and less time away from jobs. These are often perceived as restrictions. Our team was able to turn it into a positive solution that provided the interactivity and role playing needed to develop the particular skills while using a format that allowed the trainer to facilitate two to three times as many participants as a traditional classroom format.

Participants in this case-study session will learn how SNTC used an existing technology infrastructure to provide a synchronous blended training approach to geographically dispersed participants that met the requirements of no travel and cost savings. The positive results went far beyond the dollars … the blended approach kept the participants engaged with information sharing, exercises, and role playing. One trainer was able to conduct 4.5-hours of highly interactive training for 93 participants in 14 locations. If the training had been conducted in a traditional classroom setting, the training could only accommodate 32-40 participants completing exercises and role plays in a single space. SNTC was asked to provide additional training for this group following the same model.

In this session, you will learn:
  • How to locate and utilize existing technology infrastructures
  • How to coordinate the technology for multiple sites
  • How to select and prepare on-site facilitators
  • How SNTC conducted distance exercises and role plays
  • How SNTC promoted distance cross-pollination of ideas
Intermediate designers, developers, managers, and executives who possess basic instructional design skills and a working knowledge of a blended training approach.
