In technology class these weeks, we have been learning and researching about tutorials. We were working on the investigate stage of the unit. We analysed different tutorials. We basically said what was bad and good and what the tutorial needed to improve so we knew what is bad and good. We made a document called “Tutorial Research.” I watched video’s about PRANKS and this is my post of my favorite tutorial.
During the research part, I learned a lot of things. I learned that the sound and video of the tutorial effects the viewer and the viewer will like the tutorial if they have all of the things below:
I think these are the things that makes tutorial good and I think that the tutorials needs to include MORE than the above.
After we researched, we looked at other students blog and commented on their blog! We wrote what we learned from their favorite tutorial and what the video needs to improve and we could chose anyone’s blog to comment on. I commented on Kenryo’s, Tsuyoshi’s, and Everest’s blog. On Kenryo’s tutorial I learned that you shouldn’t speak fast in your tutorial or the audience will get lost. I also learned that if you talk confidentially with no mistakes, the audience will not get impatient and will like the video. In Tsuyoshi’s tutorial, I learned that you need to put your camera steady and keep so the audience will understand more. Also, in Everest’s tutorial I learned that if the video quality is horrible, then the audience will get impatient and the video will be bad.
After all finding out things and researching things, we finally made our OWN practice tutorial on google presentation. We knew what to do well on and what to be cautious about but we only had 30 minutes to finish the tutorial and this is my tutorial:
Hope you learn! WARNING: This only works for MAC
Then we needed to compare our tutorial to our favorite tutorial and thought about what was the good part and bad part of our tutorial. We needed to do the next stage, Compare & Contrast!!
The difference of my favorite tutorial and my tutorial is that my favorite tutorial told us 2 different ways to use the prank but in my presentation, there was only one way to use the technique. Also, in my favorite tutorial, it showed what you needed first but in my tutorial, I never showed what you needed. But I used lots of arrows and loops but my favorite tutorial didn’t show circles or arrows. I think we both put details and made the tutorial easy to understand.
I also learned that you need your tutorial to be clear and easy (simple) to understand. You can do this by doing editing or doing things such as voice overing.
I liked my tutorials and I think I will make more tutorials.
