“If all else fails, read the instructions.”
Everyone knows that one, right? People in general, not to mention teenagers, don’t read instructions unless they have to.
I took particular note of that when working on my online course for deaf and hard of hearing teens that opened yesterday.
I made short (average of 1 minute!) simple screencasts to explain such things as:
* how do I log in? * how do I find the assignments? * how do I use the flashcards?
Nothing beats visuals, right?
Except for the fact that the students (and the guest teachers) still have to read the instructions that say there are visual screencasts available…
*** Now admit it: Are you reading this part because you just noticed it or are you following the instructions written under the picture?
And the question is:
Can you guess what this is a picture of? I wish I could send the winner some sunny local weather but you’ll have to settle for a big “shout out”!
