DESCRIPTION: If you're a savvy eLearning creator, you already know professional-quality voiceovers can greatly enhance the learner's experience for many topics. In this hands-on session, we'll start by reviewing one-slide samples contributed by all of you, then SIG co-chair Andrew Sellon will reveal the ABCs of crafting a compelling script designed to be heard, rather than read onscreen. Working together, we'll do some rewriting exercises, then revisit some of the contributed samples, enhance the wording, and learn what choices make the voiceovers more compelling and engaging. At the end, all attendees will receive Andrew's PowerPoint slide with his list of the ABCs (and DEFs!) of writing great voiceover scripts.
SIMPLE PRE-WORK: By 5/15 at 12pm, please send Andrew (firstname.lastname@example.org) one PowerPoint slide, with onscreen content, and your voiceover script in the Notes section of the slide. That's it! It can be something you've already created (remember to replace any proprietary content), or something you're working on now. Andrew will compile all slides for the meeting, and invite you to share yours during the session.
5:30pm -- Meet & greet (in-person only)
6:00pm -- Roundtable discussion and workshop (virtual and in-person)
7:30pm -- Meeting end
Registration Deadline and Requirements: Register by 12pm on Tuesday, 5/15. We must have the list of registrants to send to CUNY security before 5pm on 5/15.
