This course it targeted to students, researchers, science communicators and educators who want to learn how to communicate their message using beautiful and fun whiteboard videos.
Whiteboard videos are the easiest type of animation to make and have the proven capacity to engage and hook-in your audience.
In this course, I will first teach you how to record your voice and make a great voiceover with background music. Second I will guide you through the interface and functioning of the entry-level animation software Videoscribe. I will show you how to create custom graphics to use in your animation and finally how to export your animation to YouTube or other platforms.
It took me years to accumulate all this knowledge. Now I packaged it all in this short course for you! What are you waiting for? Enrol and start learning! :)
This video introduces the course. You will find out if this course is right for you, the content of the course and a little bit about your teacher.
Since I finished high school I have dedicated my life to my greatest passion: the ocean. I undertook studies in marine biology, which brought me from Italy to the USA and then in Australia, where I recently completed a PhD in climate science. I always wanted to positively impact the world through science, however, during my PhD I realized that research alone is not enough. Science needs effective communication in order to make a difference. With this new awareness, I invested time and energy into becoming a proficient science communicator. This took many forms and radically shifted my career aspirations from academia to science communication.
Parallel to my education, I worked as a graphic designer for more than 10 years. Now that my education in science is complete, I feel I am connecting the dots between my scientific and design backgrounds. The two are coming together beautifully!
Thanks to this mixed background I can offer unique services which combine a solid understanding of science, the familiarity with the use of visual media and the principles of story telling. I am currently working as a freelance science communicator. I utilize my mixed skillset to help scientists and institutions communicate their complex ideas in a simple but effective way. The main services that I offer are animation video, scientific illustration and infographic design. I also teach science communication in workshops targeted to students and researchers and here on Udemy.
