October 9 (Wednesday) 10:30am – 12:00pm, Seminar - Adobe Spark: As a follow-up to the Big Tent Literacy Initiative program in April 2019, Dr. Jan Holmevik, Associate Professor of Communication and Rhetoric, and Christopher Stuart, PhD Candidate and Graduate Teacher of Record, Rhetorics, Communication and Information Design, will present an in depth program on utilizing Adobe Spark. This program is part of the Adobe Creative Cloud and is included in the software available to emeritus faculty. Adobe Spark allows both web and mobile users to create and share visual content – like posts for social media, graphics, web stories, and animated videos. Spark Post is aimed at letting you create professional graphics in minutes. Spark Page, meanwhile, is focused on helping you craft web stories. That means you can use it for things like magazine-style travel stories, photo albums, online newsletters, reports, or anything else that you want to present on the web. It’s basically a simplified web editing platform, with tools that let you mix text and imagery in a highly visual way. Finally, Spark Video lets you create animated videos in a matter of minutes, says Adobe. This isn’t a tool for filming content, however. Instead, you combine text, images, icons and themes in a presentation, then speak your voice over the story in order to create the video. Bring your smart phone, tablet, laptop or just come for the information. You can download the Adobe Spark App from the App Store prior to the session. Please join us for a no-host lunch (location TBD) after the seminar. Attending the lunch is a great way to continue the discussion with the presenter.
