Sometimes stock graphics get a bad rap because they can be too generic or disconnected from the rest of the visuals in the course. That’s fair. The trick is having stock footage that’s related to your projects. If you can’t find the stock you need, you might just have to create it. And that’s what this week’s challenge is all about!
Challenge of the Week
This week, your challenge is to record one or more short, looping video clips to use in e-learning. You can share images of people, places, objects, or anything you think will be useful.
BONUS IDEA: If you’re up for it, build a simple slide or interaction to show how your videos would be used.
