SEAMOLEC Training — Digital Learning Material Development: Whiteboard Animation  

There is a dramatic shift sweeping through the education system. Learners of the 21st century are highly relational and demand quick access to new knowledge. More than that, they are capable of engaging in learning at a whole new level. With the world literally at their fingertips, today’s students need teachers and administrators to re-envision the role of technology in the classroom.

One of the challenges for the teachers is the making of teaching materials. There are a variety of ICT-based tools for materials development. SEAMOLEC is aware of the phenomenon and aims to support the needs of the new paradigm that happens in teaching and learning in the 21st century. SEAMOLEC proposed the “Digital Learning Material Development” initiative to be jointly conducted with other educational institutions.

On 1-2 July 2021, SEAMOLEC and Sukhothai Thammathirat Open University jointly conducted the Digital Learning Material Development program, focusing on Whiteboard Animation creation with Explee.

Whiteboard Animation is a moving image that is formed from a set of image objects arranged in an orderly manner following the flow of motion that has been determined at each time count increment that occurs.

By using animated drawing presentation media, it is expected that the teacher can give different delivery and experience to students. Submission of material that was previously still conventional, became interesting learning by presenting changes in order to improve teaching materials in order to be able to suit the needs of students today using animation.

The workshop allowed the participants to be able to develop material concept map and make storyboard for teaching and learning, understand the concept of whiteboard animation, know whiteboard animation application tools, and finally develop thematic whiteboard animation-based digital teaching materials.
