An Ex-Pixar Designer Creates Astounding Kids’ Book On iPad

An Ex-Pixar Designer Creates Astounding Kids’ Book On iPad | LTS 502 - Learning and Teaching Educational Tech | Scoop.it
E-books are already a fraught subject for many readers, writers, publishers and designers, but children's e-books are even more so. Is it rotting their minds? Is it as good as good ol' paper? Is it too interactive for their own good?
Jansen Lye's insight:

Just a thought that this would be great if tutorials can be this interesting and fascinating.

They have won some oscar awards for this project. It's amazing.
James Ser's curator insight, January 25, 2013 4:56 AM

Interactive ebooks are digital projects that I work on as a digital designer myself. I also teach third year digital media students how to make interactive ebooks on iPads. In fact, this book is one of my examples that I showed in my class. In my opinion, both the story and the graphics are fantastic. The interactivity is intuitive and it complements the story very well. It is almost like mini game on each page. Highly recommended.

How I Create Video Tutorials

How I Create Video Tutorials | LTS 502 - Learning and Teaching Educational Tech | Scoop.it
September 2012 update: I wrote a new post detailing my process for creating video tutorials here: How to Create Video Tutorials -- A Five Step Process.

Creating video tutorials is no trivial task.
Jansen Lye's insight:

Finding a personal blog who talks about how to create video tutorials without a glitch. Problem is how can this be more efficient than doing a preparation all the time when students asked to demonstrate it quickly... offline.

I've created a few video tutorials for someone I have coached in the basic use of Apple Macs. It's very time consuming to do well!
Jansen Lye's comment, January 23, 2013 4:59 AM
That's what I'm having problem at the moment, As software are becoming more complex, a simple word and visualisation doesn't work anymore. I'm glad someone are having same dramas when creating perfect video tutorials.

Education leaders at universities can improve the quality of their teaching with the use of technology, online platforms and social media.
Jansen Lye's insight:

Yes mobile would be great, however does Blackboard over this conveniences or it is over complex that student don't even wanted to touch it. Are there free apps out there that students able to cross pollinate across different platform of operating system as virtual forum using text and visualisation?

Khan Academy | LTS 502 - Learning and Teaching Educational Tech | Scoop.it
With a library of over 3,000 videos covering everything from arithmetic to physics, finance, and history and hundreds of skills to practice, we're on a mission to help you learn what you want, when you want, at your own pace.
Jansen Lye's insight:

Great online teaching/ general knowledge to learn new or old things especially for adults. Is this perhaps a better version of an Encarta/Wikipedia encyclopedia?
