Animation for Integrity Policy Course Introduction


This is an animation that I created for an integrity policy course when I worked at Northeastern University. The animation built for the introductory of the Integrity Policy Course and tell students the importance of not violate academic integrity. It used for a training video. It’s goals for students to learn about several possible ways that you would violate integrity policy.

What Did I Do?

I was a multimedia designer. I designed the storyboard based on the contents of the course. I draw every scenes, including background scenes and characters.

  • I brainstormed the 5 scenes collaboration with another colleague based on the course contents. Each of the scenes of the storyboard interpreted one main topic that would lead students to violate academic integrity.
  • I designed all the illustrations and background graphics and scenes in Illustrator. In order to make the characters look like a northeastern university student, I designed two Northeastern T-shirts for them to wear. The cloth color was brand color the Northeastern University. I had many meetings and discussions with my team members to discuss the look before it was signed off.
  • When the illustration was signed off, I used Adobe After Effects to animate all of the 5 scenes. I designed the motion moves of each scene.

The video was published at Northeastern University in the spring semester of 2017. The integrity policy was liked by most of Northeastern University students. The audiences were large. It is a required course that all of the undergraduate students and master students need to watch.  The video also helped Northeastern University reached out its goal. By watching this short video, most of the students learned the ways of violating integrity policy and wouldn’t want to violate them.

The Big Hit

The design, motion, and illustration won appreciation and honor by the team. I got praise from the course program manager and the VP in my department. The feedback was very positive. 83.5% of students were happy with the video content and mastered the outcomes. I hope you would enjoy this short animation.
