Instructional materials may be more effective when they contain clear visual images that illustrate the principles being taught. We will demonstrate methods for creating effective illustrations, including (1) using public-domain illustrations from websites such as http://www.usa.gov/Topics/Graphics.shtml , (2) capturing original still photos or video footage using your digital camera or cell phone, and (3) creating simple drawings and animations with the help of PowerPoint—even if you have no artistic talent. To see examples of all three techniques in one instructor-made video, check out the film from the K-State course, GENAG 711.
