Multimodal and Alternative Assignments

Multimodal presentations allow you to create a nontraditional "essay."  These presentations blend text, image, and other elements. 

This guide will show you how to locate images, videos, and music that you can use without having to worry about copyright.  It will also introduce you to some tools for creating and editing multimodal presentations.

Everything in this guide is FREE, although you may be asked to create an account.

Starting out

These tools can help you brainstorm images and outline and check your project.

This worksheet can help you figure out what kind of images you need.

You might want to begin your work using a storyboard to visuallize your content.
