What makes you ‘Comment’ on or ‘Like’ a Post?

I have remained baffled on a phenomenon I noticed on social media technologies I am presently on – LinkedIn, YouTube, Twitter and I do blog as well. I have watched as I read several ‘Posts’ on these sharing avenues lately and wondered what the rationale is for readers, that is behind what they comment on and Like. So the questions are what makes readers add a comment or like a post? Was it based on the content of the post? Or was it influenced by who the author of the post is?

The E-Learning Heroes Community in 2014: My Story!

It was a great year for me at the articulate e-Learning heroes community in 2014. I recall that night just a few weeks after I decided to pursue e-Learning as a professional career, sometime in May last year. I was bent on finding out information about e-Learning on the Web and so I searched and searched until I came across a blog by Christy Tucker. She explained in several of her posts and I decided to finally go e-Learning. Somewhere in one of her posts, I saw a link to the Articulate e-Learning Heroes Community and signed up to become a member. That was the beginning of my eventful journey into e-Learning in 2014 and I thank God so much for it!Read More »The E-Learning Heroes Community in 2014: My Story!

4. Audio Narration and Background Music in Digital Storytelling


Title of Digital Story: Principles of Storyboarding.

Software or Tool?
I began my work in Microsoft PowerPoint and finished it in WeVideo. I added transitions and time delays depending on a close approximate of the narration per slide and frame. I saved the PowerPoint as a movie file (without any audios) and imported the video to WeVideo site after creating a free account. I imported my audio narration and music track and aligned them to the right sections of the video. I exported the final video in WeVideo.Read More »Principles of Storyboarding for e-Learning design: A digital story

One of the seven elements of a good digital Story as discussed in an earlier post is the power or uniqueness of your voice. The ability to engage the emotional power of your voice to pass across the content of your story, makes your story either engaging or boring. Creating a good audio Narration is therefore a very important consideration in creating digital stories. Locating the right background music as well helps to portray properly the content.Read More »Audio Narration and Background Music in digital Storytelling
