Document Name: Design an Element Poster & Identify Elements in Supernova Remnants

My Comments:

This assignment was part of the final group project for my Instructional Design course. As the final product was not exclusively my own work, I have only included the two lessons that I worked exclusively on. For this project, I worked closely with two other students to re-write and re-design the educational materials that had already been created, supplementing and revising as necessary. In this group, I took on a supervisory role in designing the new format, and QA testing that format on a variety of audiences.

Another group in the class created the html templates, but I have included those versions of the lessons I wrote to demonstrate the approximate final product. For reasons I am not aware of, however, the re-designed information was never posted on NASA's 'Imagine the Universe' website.
