dc.description Proposal for Masters Instructional Design Project, Educational Technology Dept. University of Hawaii Manoa 2010. en_US
dc.description.abstract This instructional design project tested the value of a Flash animated, interactive module in teaching animation principles in the Leeward Community College Digital Media Department, University of Hawaii. Studies have indicated that modern learners are less focused over long periods of time and are accustomed to multiple streams of simultaneous information. This instructional design project created an animated interactive Flash module to teach the animation principles of Arcs, Timing and Squash and Stretch. The module was accompanied by a pretest, embedded test and posttest to analyze the effectiveness of this content delivery alternative. Small group testing was conducted on 15 current students of the Leeward Community College Digital Media Department. Evidence from small group testing of the module indicates students benefited from the module in learning Animation Principles. More than seventy percent of the participants saw an improved score on the post-test. Results from this analysis are guiding the instructors of the Digital Media Department in a decision to create more modules such as this one, and simultaneously integrate such modules with the online education that is being expanded by the college. en_US
