Adobe Spark is a free suite of three multimedia tools for creating visually-inspired, digital content. Its user-friendly interface makes it an excellent tool for creating engaging videos, webpages, and social graphics for your online courses. Faculty are also using Spark to design authentic assessments that foster digital literacy and give students a product they can use and share after your class is over. Matt Mooney will share examples of brief videos from his online course that introduce students to sticky concepts at the start of a new module as well as videos produced by students as a culminating course assignment. Meg Phelps will showcase how she is using Spark to transform a traditional writing assignment into a personalized learning exercise in creativity and digital content curation.
