Proposal: [Teach, Play] Process Mapping with LucidChart

Process mapping enables teams to document processes visually to serve a variety of needs (such as information communication, providing a basis for idea generation/brainstorming sessions, and process improvement discussion, to name a few).

Learn the basics of process mapping and practice mapping with a free Google App (LucidChart).

Proposal: [Tour] One Button Studio

Take a tour of the recently-launched One Button Studio!

In partnership with OIT, Hesburgh Libraries is pleased to announce the availability of the new One Button Studio, a fully-featured digital video production studio that is designed to be both powerful and easy-to-use, requiring no prior video production experience.

The Studio, located in B-001B of the Hesburgh Library Lower Level, is available for use by all Notre Dame faculty, staff, and students (valid NDID required).

Examples of Studio projects might include activities such as practicing presentations, creating videos for online instruction, recording training or professional development modules, or creating ePortfolio materials or video essays.


Proposal: [Play] 5 Card Flickr Stories

Creativity exercise/warm-up:

This web site is designed to foster visual creativity by making stories out of photos. It is based completely on the Five Card Nancy game devised by comics guru Scott McCloud and the nifty web version at 741.5 Comics.

However, rather than using randomly chosen panels of the old Nancy comic, my version draws upon collections of photos specified by a tag in flickr. You are dealt five random photos for each draw, and your task is to select one each time to add to your building set of images, that taken together as a final set of 5 – tell a story in pictures.

When you are done, you can add a title and explanation, and save the story. You can easily put a link in your resume or send to your Mom (she may print it out and tape it to the fridge, or she may criticize your creativity, your mileage and mom may vary). Plus we offer the ability to tweet your story or use an embed code to add it to your own web site.”

Thanks to Denise Massa of the Visual Resources Center for the recommendation!

Proposal: Media scavenger hunt

based on:

The goal is to encourage people to think of their digital devices as tools they (and their students) can use for capturing media. A version of this could also be a great activity for a class.


  • Work in teams of 3-5.
  • Capture media on a phone or other digital recording device.
  • All items must be original digital media, not downloads from the Internet.
  • Options for storing media (may be combined)
    • A shared Google Drive folder
    • Upload to YouTube, Flickr, SoundCloud, etc.
  • Options for submitting entries (may be combined)
    • URL for shared Google Drive folder
    • Google Doc with links to the media
