Tips for non-narrated course
We have a course that we had originally planned to do with narration but have since decided to eliminate the narration. The original intent was to provide a detailed script in the notes and short bits of text and graphics on the screen. Now we have to put all of the content on the slides. This is obviously more text than we had planned. Haven't done it this way before and would like your advice on how best to approach it.
For example, is it better to display text all at once since user's reading pace varies, or do you still display the text in a staggered way to add interest? How do you incorporate graphics animations with the text? Or do you just avoid animation except on the slide transitions? I can see where it might be distracting if new text is appearing when you haven't finished the other text, but obviously we want to avoid making the user wait for text to appear. We'd like to add interest, and animation is a great way to do that, but we don't want to annoy the user with it.
I would appreciate any tips or advice for creating a visually interesting course without narration.
