This workshop module introduces you to an important aspect of OER development. Blended OER content  incorporates more than one teaching modality - like text with animation, images, video clips and more. This greatly increases the learner's ability to understand and apply concepts. While there are a variety of tools available to create blended, interactive online resources for education; some basic understanding of the features of digital images, the importance of file size in online resources, available file formats can be very useful.



This module will provide you with


  • definitions to terms widely used in the display and printing of images

            Understanding digital images and resolution 


  • Provoke you to try some hands on activities with image resizing


  • Learn to judge which file formats suit images/ video files or software flash presentations
