The activity is presented to the students. They will make a prototype of an interactive documentary based on the materials generated during the second activity of this module. The students are organized into the same groups of 2-3 students as the previous activity to carry out this final activity. In this session the teacher explains the fundamental concepts of interactivity and gives examples. (50').
This session is dedicated to the construction of the interactive structure of the documentary. The basic concepts of using the Klynt tool, an easy-to-use multimedia editor, are covered. (50').
* If necessary, students will conduct two Webinars at home (classes online) to complement the training in the Klynt software.
In this session the students comment on the interactive script made at home. They also put the video materials into the Klynt software and prepare the graphic contents. (50').
The students record the documentary in their free time.
Each group of students dedicates this session to working on the interactive part of the documentary. (50').
Students make a presentation in front of their project partners. The documentaries produced are viewed and exhibited. Students will explain the limitations and potentialities of the productions and discuss strengths and possible improvements. (50').
First, the students, through the presentations, give feedback to their classmates in relation to the interactive script. The teacher evaluates both the product and the presentation, the process and progress of the work throughout the activity. The capacity for group work, problem solving, and self-criticism should be taken into account as well as the research and depth of the subject.
