Recently, the team I work on at Adobe was given a special task; to create new education-based assets to use in demonstrations, tutorials and to share with educators and other education colleagues. The main idea being to produce content that could be considered usable from a “non-designer/arts” perspective.We worked in teams. My team consisted of me and my colleague Steve Adler (also a former educator, like I am). We’ve both been amazed by the great new goal-based tutorials that can be found on AdobeforAcademics, and in particular, we were inspired by the timelapse video tutorial that can be found there. It’s a very thorough tutorial on using Premiere Pro to create a timelapse video.

This tweet led me to a very interesting article, inspired by the 2013 Horizon Report on Higher Education.The report is hugely informative and enlightening. If you’ve not read the report, and you’re involved in higher education, I highly recommend reading it.

I found many informative resources in the Horizon report, one of which led me to the infographic you see below. The infographic was created by OnlineUniversities.com. I think in many ways, the most telling information comes from the Owner’ Opinions, about 2/3 of the way down the chart. That information really speaks to how popular tablets are among students.
