It’s not just about the Nutella: Building a Partnership between Learning Designer and Instructor

Tue, 2016-09-27 12:58 -- eab14

One of my favorite parts of being a learning designer is working with instructors. It’s not only a chance to create a new course with ideas, but it’s an opportunity for a new work partnership. The idea-sharing, the collaborative work, and even the thrill of reaching a goal too close to a deadline are enriching.

Here are a few tips I’ve gathered over the years on building partnerships among designers and instructors:

What Do You See?

The probability of encountering a student with color deficiency (color blindness) in your online course is higher than you might think. By following accessibility best practices you can eliminate potential issues with image interpretation from the start. However, what about images from outside sources that you require the student to analyze? Are there strategies that you can employ to assist a student with color deficiency? The answer is “yes.”

Making your Videos, Narrated Screen Captures and Audio Files Accessible

Wed, 2015-09-02 11:43 -- jls164

Videos, narrated screen captures, and audio files need three things to be accessible to all students.

  • transcripts
  • notes before the video referencing the topic and length of the video
  • closed captions

If you have NOT created the content yourself and the original author has not included accurate captions, a transcript will suffice. NOTE: You can NOT rely on YouTube automatic captions.

This is a great video that shows different tools that help you to do visual recording on the iPad. Her visual recording style is interesting and engaging, too! If you want to put together a quick and dirty demonstration of a topic, thoughts around an example, or cartoon-like demonstration for your class, this is an excellent place to start.
