In technology class we are working on making a tutorial and research how tutorial works.
First thing we did is researching our favorite tutorial and looking at good things and bad things about the tutorial.
I also took my favorite tutorials and I made them into a blog post.
After that I commented on Lente’s, Grace’s and Haruna’s blog about their favorite tutorial blog post.
I learned that short clear steps are good for tutorials because its more easier for the audience to understand clearer and short steps don’t bore the audience. Also when you do a voiceover you make sure if the voice is clear and easy to understand or the audience won’t understand your tutorial. I think those are important things to think about when making my tutorial to make it good.
I made a tutorial for photoshop about filling with gradient in technology class.
Now i’m going to compare and contrast this tutorial and my favorite tutorial.
So… Watch me do that.
I know you might think they both are 2 completely different tutorial because one is a video and another is a slideshow and they both teach you different things.
But theres are some similarities too, like that both tutorial has simple and clear steps so the audience won’t get confused and thats your worst case scenario. Or that they both have visuals to make the audience understand more and make them visualize better.
Those two points are very important for tutorials but there are some other points or differences between the videos. First video tutorial have voice overs which is in a steady slow pace for the audience to understand. Voice overs comes handy because they help the audience to understand better and clearer. Second, slideshow tutorials can follow your own pace so you can stop whenever you want to and move to the next step when you are done or move one back if you made a mistake. Video tutorials go with their own flow so you have to be careful how slow you go. I think those points are very important for a tutorial and I will be careful and try to use them when making my own tutorial to make mine better.
In conclusion, I think these steps were helpful to make my tutorial better and I will investigate more to make my tutorial good.
Until then, bye.
