A few Learning Projects I have going on.
learnstruck | quick video project
My video experiment in creating quick bite sized learning. It’s my beleif that the sweet spot in video duration is 5o-120 seconds. After that watchers click away. Check out this YouTube channel to see examples and best practices on how to approach and frame a mini story. It takes a lot more then just speaking fast. Trust me.
HACKLAB | learning through discovery
Have you every hacked something brilliantly? It’s the story of my life. So, I’ve turned my garage into a learning space and created a MeetUp group and I’m uploading weekly DIY build videos from long boards, stickers, t-shirt makers and anti-theft phone charging stations that lock the cords down.
storyparts.com | what’s your story?
Story has been the buzz word of messaging and education or scenario for years now. Story engages and teaches without pushing content. But it’s not easy to write a good story, let alone produce and finish one. I’ve been there countless times searching thru stock libraries for simple icons to illustrate my story or message. So I started packaging sets I could find and repurpose for new stories in a smart digital library. I separated and tagged images by purpose then style intelligently to explain any process or storyline fast. So those perfect sequestered graphics you know you have are now available. My favorite illustrators and design students have join me to design what I’m calling storyparts. A smart assest library where after choosing the style you can download and drag and drop into a variety of your applications including ScreenFlow, Camtasia, Apple Motion, After Effects, and Powerpoint.
