Model Corporation Logo for Teaching Use

Sometimes when I teach I use scenarios from pretend coporations to help the lessons seem more realistic. I use one called Baker Corporation on occasion, and decided to use Adobe Illustrator to make a logo. I made several versions, but settled on the first one for general use.

EdTech Training Flyer eBeam Edge & Mimeo Teach (Final Draft)

I revised the flyer based on some feedback and design input. It is now easier to read and has more white space.

EdTech Training Flyer eBeam Edge & Mimeo Teach (1st Draft)

I created a new flyer with InDesign using the frame of the previous training flyer. This session is for training on our mobile interactive whiteboard options at UT.

EdTech Training Flyer Revised

I modified the last flyer based on some feedback, and replaced my logo with one approved for use by the University. I also removed a few lines, centered the document, and increased the white space to reduce cognitive load. Overall, I like the revised version and think it looks fairly clean.

Proposed Open Badge System for Hybrid Process at UT

I proposed a possible open badge system for the hybrid course design process at UT. It overlays the current 3 stage system. The idea was to badge heavily as a way to build community among the faculty and to raise awareness of the hybrid process. This is an early conceptual outline, and corresponds with the mission statement showcased under the Instructional tab of this site.

Transparent Backgrounds in PowerPoint

I recently learned how to make the background of an image transparent using PowerPoint. I made a couple of fun images to test it out. This would be useful for creating signatures for PDFs, creating interesting slides for class, or perhaps to show a process (e.g., how an object moves through a system).

Open Badges for The University of Tampa

After several iterations, I designed an approved Open Badge icon (modified from the the UT Spartans icon) in Photoshop to create the official badges to be used at The University of Tampa!

Storyboard Graphic: Bloom’s Taxonomy 

This is a graphic I made for part of a video storyboard. In the video, each level of the taxonomy appeared in sequence as the narrator was discussing it.

Storyboard Graphic: 3 Steps 

This is a graphic from a storyboard I made a while back for a video about Camtasia Relay. In the video, the steps would appear on the pad in a preview of the section, and then be checked off once we covered each step in the video.

This is a flyer I made to advertise an effort to bring and display art in the university’s instance of Second Life.

Taxonomy for Open Educational Designs (OEDs)

This is a taxonomy of various open course types. I argue that these different environments operate on three different versions of openness with entirely different goals and design implications for each environment type.

Faculty Enthusiasm When Forced to Contribute to OER

I carried out a study examining faculty enthusiasm under the Creative Commons Licenses when faculty were forced to contribute their personally developed course materials to an OER repository (hypothetical situation). Faculty were randomly assigned to one of six scenario groups where they were being required by their institutions to contribute 100% of their personally developed course materials into an OER repository. The Independent Variable for the groups was the type of Creative Commons License their work was to be released under. Faculty then responded to the same set of questions and their responses were compared. The results were then discussed with ten faculty in qualitative interviews.

Naturally, there were issues of trust and fear, but some other interesting thing showed up. Faculty in the sample seemed to prefer licenses where people using the work were required to share their modifications over other licenses. The quantitative results were not statistically significant overall, but there were statistically significant differences between the groups. Qualitative interviews tended to confirm the preferences and trust issues.

IDD Website

I redesigned the Instructional Design and Development webpage using Google Sites under the guidance of Dan Surry.  We streamlined the links into categories for new and current students, promoted the social media and program pictures,  and added an events section with a calendar and updates.  Here is a snapshot of the homepage, which you can visit here.

ILC Services Flyer

I created a flyer to advertise some of the services the Innovation in Learning Center has for faculty.  The design is meant to be futuristic, imply tech saavy, and build interest in the ILC’s services. The flyer was created on Pages, part of the iWork Studio or the MacIntosh.

Graphic Interface

For a class assignment we got to design a graphic interface for a website or software face. The left side would contain buttons that lead to relevant information such as instructions, safety info/equipment, tools, materials, etc.Graphic Interface

Concept Map

We were assigned a concept map for James Paul Gee’s book “What Video Games Have to Do With Learning and Literacy.”  Mine is below.
