Adult online learners and visitors to BrightBel's Resume Optimization course page
This video was part of my M.Ed. in Learning and Technology capstone project. I created a Resume Optimization course for BrightBel Online Learning. Visitors to the course saw the video under a brief description of the course and its offerings. It allowed the learner to hear a brief introductory message, a breakdown of the main concepts covered in the course, and the flexibility offered.
I started with a very basic diagram with the elements that I wanted in my video. I treated it as an outline, a guide to follow through the process. I used it to ensure I was staying on track and following the most logical workflow for my methods of creating media.
I knew I wanted to work on my welcome speech first, to ensure that everything else I created would flow with the message. Once I had all the files created, I made a more visually appealing storyboard. I did this to get a more vivid snapshot of what I was creating and the order in which I would add components to the video. This helped me to be certain of the elements I wanted in the video and that the order had an appealing flow to it.
