DigiSchool e-Learning Modules

Backstory

DigiSchool was a huge project that involved creation of thousands of animated and video modules tranlated from the text books, from about 26 educational boards across India. I have visualised, directed the production of almost 40% of them. I headed production of Chemistry, Physics, Primary Maths and Information Technology. The role involved, setting up visual standards and production guidelines, training and supervising team, visualing, storyboarding and directing the modules.

Backstory

The first video here shows a Chemistry module. I defined all the standards and templates for  chemistry, such as how  a chemical reaction equation should be animated, how atoms should look, what should be their colours and relative sizes, how molecules should form and we also set up a 3D chemistry laboratory, complete with all the instruments so that future production goes super fast. All this brought cohesion in all the modules while making them visually rich, learning was made easy and clutterable visuals became clean and clear to understand.

Physics

Backstory

Physics brought greater challenge as these videos would have elements which can not be templatised, such as real world scenario which would be required to explain the physical principles and the apparatus where were not used more than once. And there were so many of them. However, this gave us a greater opportunity to develop simulations too. Many of the animations shown in these modules were actually created using actual physical values, such as gravity constant, surface tension quotient & viscosity of liquids and so on. Physics production was the one that I enjoyed making the most!

Backstory

First thing we learn, ‘its math, not maths’. 🙂 These were lively module created for children less than 10 years of age. Therefore, while they were supposed to be teaching one of the most hated subject, they had to be fun too. We achieved that by teaching those topics with fun and easy to relate scenarios, and cute, lovable and relatable characters with real life problems. One of the examples would be a farm we developed in 3D for this purpose. It had variety of cute animals with funny habits, and very beautiful barn, and lots of space for games and playing, with slides and swings and tyre swings etc. I wasn’t surprised later to see a similar barn and farm house in one of the Micky Mouse Clubhouse’s latest episode.
