In toolkit this quarter, we learned every single detail about tutorials. Doing loads of different activities, we learned about the planning of a tutorial, creating a tutorial, and acting like designers. During this incredible time, we learned loads of different concepts, that are important to know when creating a tutorial. The most important ones are sound, picture, text, and film. One of the activities we did, was skyping with another school in Jacksonville, Florida. The school at the other end had learnt already a lot about tutorials, and talked to us, gave us some tips, told us about their tutorials, and shared some cool information about tutorials. We watched multiple tutorials and people planning something, to help us work through figuring out what to do to plan a tutorial and to create one.
Since everything has a reason behind it, I think that we had to learn about tutorials to make sure, that when we want to show our understanding of something in the future, we can actually know how to make a proper tutorial for someone to be able to watch and understand. Also, learning about tutorials and it's planning stages, helps you learn how to plan something in general. It shows you that things take time to plan. When we were learning about the planning stages of a tutorial, we were learning about how long it takes to actually have the clip you want to use, or to actually find the perfect image.
Here are some tutorials I made:
This first tutorial, is about how to download widgets for your desktop.
This second one is about keyboard shortcuts for word, and also google docs.
