If creating digital content is on your mind we need to chat. I have a Content Creation Checklist started, but could use some help completing it.
There are somethings you should consider before investing time and effort:
- Is the content engaging? Neither teachers nor students want passive content when online.
- Is your content chunk-able? Chunking for online is different than face-to-face, but easy once you get the hang of it.
- Does your content look the same (or better) when accessed from a mobile device?
- Is your content hardware-agnostic? If Apple doesn’t play well with Flash, you shouldn’t be creating anything in Flash.
- Is the look and feel a contemporary, fresh-looking, lean design? Not expensive, but contemporary. Because that is just about design, not software; you can do contemporary in PowerPoint.
- Have you balanced the predictable with the novel? Because that’s an art form – good for you.
- Are you free from copyright anxiety? Teacher-to-teacher, if you made it with your school’s time, software, or hardware – then it is theirs.
I cannot give you more detail than that, but Renee Hobbs can and she is an expert!

Some of the best web and mobile app designs have a very limited colour range. Two or three colours can be more than enough, and I find that a restrained approach to colour works especially well on de-cluttered interfaces.
