In this month's segment we will help instructional designers improve their craft by SEEING their projects differently. By thinking visually about the content you are creating you become a better instructional designer. Kevin Thorn shows us his process for breaking down images and objects into a combination of simple shapes. And then building your own objects and visuals that support your content by simply reversing the process. It all starts with simple shapes. And even if you think you can't draw, Kevin will help you change your mind and give you the confidence to be the visual thinker your projects need you to be.
