Flash Animation – Making E-Learning Easier
I appeared an animation seminar recently and it was quite a fun and useful event. Various animators and animation fans have attended the prestigious event. Luckily I was part of the guest list, the animation seminar started from where animation invented, from the ancient times to the first time Gertie, the dinosaur, was able to change on its own. Later modern animation was discussed.
Flash animation is one of the eLearning tools used in making learning content. It is now being used as a platform in producing animated sequence. From what I have observed, more and more people are confessing this new medium for animation. Knowing this, I asked myself, “Would an animated learning happy be a better education course?”
Nowadays people are sighted animation as more than just shows for children. Filmmakers now use animation as a medium in their movies. In the virtual classroom, animation is a great tool for teaching learners through the use of flash animation. Real life states can be animated for students to study. For example, in medical and health education courses, the human structure is animated and even though it is a fake version of the real thing, the details of it are very perfect. It is like seeing the real thing as well. Online medical students can watch how medicine works on sure ailments through an animated clip which shows how the medicine is applied. Regular and boring tests can be spiced up by converting it into a more animated and interactive game rather than presenting it in a simple question and answer form.
By using animation in making learning content, students become more interested in learning because they are learning their lessons but at the same time they are interested as well. ELearning tools like flash animation makes online learning content and education modules become easier to understand and user friendly.
Today gaming is not got only as distraction but it is now being known as a useful platform. It was confirmed that people tend to learn more if the method is fun and entertaining like video games. Flash animation is used to create communicating digital educational materials like video game type of tests and other collaborative test. This tool also can provide animated lectures and demo videos that online students will find entertaining but educational too.
Flash animation allows writers and developers to create communicating multimedia files or simply called movies. These files join graphics and sounds and to some degree, allow the user determine the course of action. This is what interactivity is all about. Instead of providing a dull multiple choice question tests where online student simply marks their answer, authors can now create a drag and drop type of test much alike to a video game. This will kind the test more.
Flash Animation is an authoring tool which can also create animation orders or simulate movement on screen. This online learning tool is used in creating instructional or demo animation video clips. The clips can also be used as video factual for online lectures for the students.
Business solution companies and software development companies are nonstop creating better e-learning development tools that can assist developers and authors to offer more interactive content. Flash animation makes learning informative, interactive and attractive as well.
