Re-evaluating the textbook: a journey into digital text creation
Taking the storyboard and bringing it to life took the majority of the time. The few examples of Flash animation were time vacuums, but the saltar animation above is one of the things the students remember most. So it might have been worth it in the long run. All the images utilized for the techbook were either created specifically for the techbook or were licensed under Creative Commons. Only using Creative Commons media was a goal of the project. I needed to set an example of current technology expectations for students.
The entire process is documented in the project document to the left.
