Day One

The three day training course in Author Development begins with an introduction to Microcraft and an overview of the development process including scripting, implementation and project management.

Technical skills in the use of video and still cameras including tips for optimum performance and quality of output will be provided. Trainees will record voice over in our sound booth, and then edit this audio to make it suitable for implementation.

Day Three

The third day of training allows trainees the opportunity to practice using some of the more advanced aspects of Author including the construction of an assessment and the intricacies involved in randomising a test, scoring and accessing results.
