This week: course graphics
It’s that time of the semester again. Last week, I got two course graphics assignments, one for a microeconomics course and the other for a rhetoric course (but it’s on coding, so…)
Each are pretty straightforward, but they also have their quirks. Like I detailed in last week’s blog post, I created a hybrid image with Photoshop cutouts and image edits for the microeconomics course. We ultimately didn’t use it — instead, we’re using one of the stock images I suggested previously. And for rhetoric, the professor needed not one, not two, but six (yes, six) presentation templates in Keynote, the default Mac presentation software.
I hadn’t used Keynote, but it was fairly simple (I daresay more user-friendly that PowerPoint.) I created a template using master slides, then picked a color scheme (the professor wants his presentations color-coded) using coolors.com before making the remaining five presentations. I created the remaining graphics for that course today, like the callout buttons and the Canvas banner.
In other news, my car got dented from a hailstorm (hang in there, Camry!) and I got new blue light blocker glasses, which I highly recommend even as we’re starting to come out of the pandemic.
