In December 2015, designer Izabela Boloz contacted us to discuss a video assignment for the Industrial Design (ID) faculty of Eindhoven University of Technology. The assignment was to develop and implement a series of web lectures that would accompany a web-based course on Self-Directed Learning for ID Bachelor, led by dr. Migchiel van Diggelen.
The general goal was to create a series of videos that would introduce the basics of Self-Directed Learning in an inspiring manner. To achieve this, we decided to combine live presentations with illustrations. Since most of the information was not visual, illustrating the content helped to engage the students. We invited designer Marnix Oosterwelder to create the illustrations based on the script and ID arranged three students to be the presenters.
