Gathering Assets

It's important to use high quality assets and to try to make sure they are copyright free if possible. There are lots of places you could get these from on my Copyright Free Images and Copyright Free Audio and Video pages.

You need to record where you source your assets from and how you edit them. You can use the exam board template below to do this.

You will need to use screenshots to evidence a lot of the work for this LO.

Creating the IMMP

You need to use tools and techniques to create the final graphic.

What skills should I use?
Anything that makes your product more interactive is good. You could take a look at:

pdf iconIMMP PowerPoint skills - the sorts of skills you might use to build something interactive

pdf iconKiosk mode - how to lock a PowerPoint down to "kiosk mode". This forces the user to use buttons and not just mash the spacebar

It's important to evidence what you do. Screenshots, with some writing to go with them, are probably the best way to do this.

You also need to evidence your use of version control, filenames and folders. If you don't provide evidence of this you can't get any credit for the bottom part of the markgrid.

Templates

You can use these templates.

This is a template produced by OCR which you are allowed to use. I'm providing it here because it's easier to do that than put it somewhere else. I'm not claiming it's mine and haven't changed it in any way (not even to make the header rows work properly...)
