Super Mario, here I come!

Attended a three day Junior Hackathon for Scratch at Alpha Academy, Johor Bahru. The first day, i.e. 20 March 2018 focuses on simulating Super Mario using the Scratch Programming.
We are required to follow the module to construct this game. The mentor, Mr. Wilson and Mr. Raja shall attend to us when we were confused over certain concepts and helped us to debug some of our algorithm.

This is the edited version of my Super Mario project:

Animated learning materials using Scratch

By using Broadcast, we may staggered events and play them in a preset sequence. Here, we may plan the entrance, emphasis and exit of certain sprites according to our design.This learning programme intend to try out the progressive exposure technique to introduce colours. You may click the START button to start and then click on the words to learn about six colours.

Scratch programming is a very user friendly object-oriented programming where we just need to drag and drop scripting blocks into the scripting area using the correct syntax.

This is an example of creating a virtual keyboard using simple algorithm. You may hit the green flag to start the Project, and click the Start button to start playing notes on the keyboard.

Every note is a Sprite, and when it is clicked, it will trigger certain effect, let’s try and see for yourself.

Storytelling using MS PowerPoint

PowerPoint is indeed a very powerful multimedia tool. It is an ideal tool for storytelling. We may employ a wide range of animation effects, trim and bookmark certain segment of the audio and video insertion, using appropriate design to show special effect to create suspend and climax.

We may export the presentation in the form of video (MP4) which may be uploaded to video log such as YouTube. This an example of storytelling which uses a few combination of animation effects for each slide.

MS PowerPoint 2016

MS PowerPoint merupakan persembahan elektronik yang boleh digunakan secara online  ataupun offline. Salah satu kekuatan PowerPoint adalah kesan animasinya yang pelbagai dan menarik. Kita menggunakan kesan animasi bagi menghidupkan persembahan slaid dengan memasukkan kesan animasi.

Tutorial ini bertujuan memperkenalkan kesan animasi “Flip”. Ia terdiri daripada dua objek yang mempunyai kesan yang berlainan, iaitu, satu adalah Exit effect – Collapse dan satu lagi adalah Entrance effect – Stretch.

Yang berikut merupakan persembahan PowerPoint yang merupakan panduan melakukan kesan animasi ini:

You may remix it by performing the following task:

  1. Rename the backdrop to reveal the topic of your quiz.
  2. Modify the questions, answers, score point and feedback for the sprites Heart1, Heart2, Heart3 and Heart4.

You may modify the scripts, background, sprites, as you wish. Best of luck!
