Idat 202: Making of card

Today I woke up and I thought, I best do some work, even if it is not loads. I decided to make the cards that we will use on our e-learning application. I thought it would be best to have the back of the card in the traditional red colour, and I just placed my own simple pattern on the back. I done this task in Fireworks CS3. You can find the finish piece in my e-learning workbook…

Idat 202: DS game wants to join in the magic

Today whilst i was looking for DS lite games I came across a game named, Magic Made Fun.  On this game you can interactive with magic tricks and also learn them.

Here is a video i have found on YouTube, of the game trail.

Idat 202: Before Turin and Easter

We had a meeting today with Katina to discuss what our plans our before we break up for Easter.  Vicky and I plan to film the card trick being completed this week and she is going to edit it ready for it to be placed on the application, I am going to finish the design and have final templates done, and Aqeel is going to look more into Action Script and what we can do with it.

Idat 202: Draft Interface

I have quickly today done two draft Interfaces of what the menu interfaces will look like.  These are really basic, but its just so I can get an idea of how they look. You can find them in my workbook:

Idat 202: Design Persentation

We did our presentation in front of the group and Katina today, to find a copy of it look in my workbook:

Aqeel discussed our research into what is already out there, and how our survey went. Then I went into my storyboards, and how the application can be used. I also showed the character of the rabbit in the hat that we created, so the user has something to relate to, as this is the character who will “technically” teach the user the trick. You can find these both again in my work book:

I felt our presentation went well. It was interesting to hear what everybody else is doing, I must say we are the only know “school” base application as everybody else is teaching Maths, or English, whereas ours is more of a hobby.

Idat 202: Research

Aqeel has been looking into what is out there.  Vicky and I also look at the beginning of this project ourselves as-well and we have all said the same thing, which is how all that is out there is just text based explanations, not any visual pieces, the only visual pieces out there are when you actually take part of the trick as the person it is being down on.

To find the website Aqeel looked into please refer to my workbook:

you will also find a link to a video of Aqeel learning a trick off the Internet and he discuss how he feels and whether he learnt it well, very interesting!!!
