The Hard Cell: Writing for Animation in Digital Learning

But the sheer scope and possibility of writing for animation can be a challenge in itself. From music to movement, and from visuals to learning impact, every element requires careful planning and a consistent focus on your learning needs.

With fresh, real-life examples and case studies from our clients, Elly:

  • provided a masterclass in how to write effective animated learning content
