Gamifying Education

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… 😉

Mobile workflow tutorials, now with more mobile!

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.

Enjoy!

It’s here!

My Intro to Flex Builder tutorial that I wrote for Cartoonsmart is now available. This is so exciting! It’s great to see the early feedback on the first hour that was released for free. Check out the forum here.

It’s being released at an incredibly low price of only $15. Click here for more info.

UMap and Flash CS4 part 1

I’ve uploaded a new tutorial on using AFComponents UMap AS3 control in Flash CS4 (also works with Flash CS3). There is a fundamental difference in how you use the map component between Flash and Flex. This tutorial shows you how to setup the basic map and add nav controls, as well as skin the nav controls.

Check it out here.
