Session #2

I learned many ideas about how to use infographics in teaching; e.g., introducing new topic, comparing, analyzing information, explaining complicated topics, reviewing/summarizing books, how-to-process, and more.

In addition to introducing many tools to create infographics:

Session #3

Thad Dachille

I learned how to edit an image using Adobe Photoshop CC 2017 to create a social media banner.

Thad shared a very great open source high-resolution imagery website.

Session #4

In this session, I entered a magic world using Virtual Reality goggles, GoPro & 360 cameras, Google Glass, smart watches, and more.

Session #5
Introduction to Adobe Captivate Software

Captivate is an e-learning authoring tool. It seems a little bit complicated, but it can help teachers to create a variety of interactive content; e.g., web ages, videos, quizzes, and more.

To get started sharing ideas and communicating with others, join the Adobe eLearning Community!
