Digital Media 1A & 1B
Strengths: This text does a good job in covering the technical side of Adobe CC 2015 Illustrator, Photohop, Adobe Animate, Premier, and Dreamweaver. The teacher edition provides prompts throughout the text to start discussions in career readiness and ethics. The text does a decent job at covering the Elements and Priniples of Design, but is lacking in details and definately in examples. Provides many quizes for students to practice verbally and practically.
Weaknesses: The text is based on Adobe CC 2015 products. The student text gives instruction on how to access the practice files, but they are not available. It fails to give any instruction or mention of the ADDIE Model or Adobe's professional design and development process. Copyright is mentioned but not discussed in any depth. Audio design is only covered in relation to video production as a companion but not as a stand alone. The book lacks examples to deepen learning.
