We often see them, those tall or wide angle or 180 degree panoramic that wow us when they catch our gaze. What if I said, you can do them too very easily. All you need is a series of photographs that fit together into a panoramic. When taking the photos ensure you do not use a wide angle lens and leave some overlap between them so Photoshop can work out where they go. Also, unless your computer is brand new and fitted with the latest high end hardware, try to keep the number of pictures to less than 15 if you camera is taking each picture at about 4000×3000 pixels. Go grab your camera now and take some; don’t worry, I will be here for when you get back.
Research has repeatedly shown that learners benefit from multimodal (both visual and auditory) instruction, so using a speech commentary is a great way to engage learners with eLearning. You can choose either to record a human voice (perhaps even your own) or to use Captivate’s Text to Speech (TTS) feature. This simulates human speech based on text that you provide as Slide Notes.
