This is by far the best explanation of how to incorporate gaming techniques into education. I can see a lot of possible apps to help facilitate this. And I think the new mobile workflows in Flash CS5.5 and Flash Builder 4.5 would be the best way to deploy these app ideas across multiple devices. I think I even have a few tutorials on how to create mobile apps… 😉
So I’ve been cranking out my mobile workflow video tutorials like crazy these past two weeks. The plan is to cover everything I know about creating iOS, Android, and BlackBerry Playbook apps using Flash Professional CS5.5 and Flash Builder 4.5. I may even start an Objective-C tutorial series as well, seeing how I’m coding iOS apps at work. My list of tutorials keeps getting longer. At this point I’ve posted 24 new ones on my YouTube page here.
I’ve also posted all the project files that accompany the tutorials on the home page of my website here. Not every tutorial has a project file, though it should be pretty obvious which ones do. I try to post the files after I’ve uploaded the videos, but sometimes it takes a day for me to catch up. If you find something missing, let me know in the comments, and I’ll see what I can do.
I’m starting a new tutorial series on Actionscript 3. The plan is to release short videos that cover all the basics of working with AS3, including Flash CS4 and Flex Builder 3.
Check out the new tutorial here.
I show you how to customize the icons found in the tree component.
You can download the .fla and .xml files used in this tutorial here.
In this tutorial I discuss the differences between creating your own movieClip buttons and using the button component.
