Project Planning

directionsAlthough it's fun to jumping into the production of Flash project, planning is important when building effective information and instructional experiences.

Audience

Begin by focusing on the audience. Ask yourself:

  • For whom is your project aimed?
  • What are the characteristics of your learners or patrons?
  • What are their ages, developmental level, socio-economic status, geographical location, and other demographics?
  • What are the learning styles of these people?
  • How are they motivated?
  • Do these people have specific interests or special needs?
  • What technology is available to these people?
Purpose

Next, consider the purpose of the project. Ask yourself:

  • What are the goals and objectives for the project?
  • How will you know if you've reached those goals?

Architecture

Many designers use concept maps and storyboards to visualize the information architecture of their project.

  • How will the project be organized and structured?
  • What information will be incorporated?
  • What audio, video, and visual elements will be included?
  • What level of interactivity is necessary to meet the goals of the project?
  • What guidance will be provided for users of the project?
