View PDF Description and Agenda
Adobe Spark is a free online tool that allows individuals and businesses to create web graphics, video, and web pages for sharing their stories. Spark can be an incredibly valuable tool for Extension professionals because it is free (or you can upgrade with a low-cost subscription), easily accessible, requires little training to use, and it engages audiences in creative ways.
Research consistently shows that short video clips, visually stimulating web pages, and stunning graphics are more likely to grab someone's attention than plain written content, regardless of how exciting and engaging the written content is to the recipient. Therefore, it is crucial that Extension professionals continue to enhance the electronic methods with which we reach our audiences and bolster our ability to effectively communicate in the 21st century.
This webinar will briefly reflect the importance of stimulating online learners and information seekers, introduce the Adobe Spark platforms, walk participants through creating a brief video and page, and provide insight on how Spark can be used by Extension professionals.
