Authorship of Multimedia for Learning

Artifact 1

VIDEO: How to Solder Your Own XLR Microphone Cable
Description

Here is an instructional video I created on how to solder an XLR microphone cable.  I've also included the storyboards, which are just a simple script of the voiceover with a description of the actions.

 
Rationale

Instructional video is a natural choice for demonstrating the use of multimedia for learning.  The voice-over was performed after the film was edited.  This shows my ability to use appropriate technologies and pedagogy to support student learning.

Artifact 2

Description

This is an example of non-linear multimedia instruction.  The learner navigates the instruction by clicking on various parts of a compressor.  There is no beginning or end of the instruction, and the learner can choose to explore certain topics in a deeper way should they desire to do so.  This presentation works best with Microsoft Powerpoint.

 
Rationale

This is a more modern example of multimedia instruction.  By giving the learner a choice in what order to approach the instruction, the hope is that the learner will be more engaged.  This type of instruction could be imagined to be at, say, a video kiosk or on a tablet. This shows my ability to use appropriate technology and select appropriate processes and resources for learners.
