illustrative doodles: reflective report

Having been hired (at least temporarily) and spending much of my time at work or dabbling in a million other summertime activities, I haven’t had much chance to get any other serious work in. Hoping to turn that around now that I’ve adjusted to my schedule. I have some projects I’m really looking forward to working on, but for now, here’s some super-quick illustrations I did for my online Adult Learning & Staff Training certificate course.

These were just meant to illustrate the three topics of my final reflective report for the first course of the program. Fortunately for me, the course allowed you to be a bit creative in the presentation of your report — that is, not making it a firm requirement to stick to size 12 Times New Roman or anything like that — so I chose to include some hasty & playful artwork.

Adobe Captivate demo project complete!

Phew! Finished off my Adobe Captivate demo course yesterday evening. I’m quite happy with how it turned out — it’s a good match to what I had in mind. Unfortunately the file will not be available forever (will probably expire in late June), because of the limitations on my trial version of the software. But once I’m able to have access to a fully licensed version, I’ll make sure to replace it with a permanent copy.

Update: I found someone to help me publish a permanent copy of the course. However, you’ll notice a few funny things in the layout because they did not have access to the same fonts that I was using, and I didn’t want to bother them with having to install fonts (they were already doing me a huge favor). So please forgive the minor mis-alignments! I will fix them when I have access to a full version of Captivate for myself.

captivate course build — almost done!

Phew! After a few days working on my demo course, it’s almost done! All the content and functionality is now in place. The only thing left to do is to add a little animation, just to make some of the screens more dynamic.

I’m determined to finish that tonight! For now, you can take a look at the teeny thumbnails in my Captivate filmstrip view.
