The questions which follow provide a basic knowledge test of selected concepts covered in this learning pathway: Static audiographic remix.

The questions published at the end of each learning pathway are re-used for the knowledge test for learners interested in earning a digital badge or certificate of participation for the Digital skills for OER sharing (DS4OERS) micro-course. Please consult the Certify participation page for more information.

    • WAV
      • Incorrect. WAV are high quality, ‘lossless’ audio files, so have a larger size than an MP3 file for the same piece of audio.
  • What sort of diagram would be the best to use to illustrate a process?
    • Venn
      • Incorrect. A Venn diagram is more suitable for comparing similarities and differences between several concepts.
    • Fishbone
      • Incorrect. Fishbone diagrams are better for illustrating cause and effect.
    • Flowchart
      • Correct. Flowcharts are good for illustrating processes.
    • Timeline
      • Incorrect. A timeline is more suitable for illustrating a historical (or future) sequence of events with specific dates/times.
  • What is the most widely used aspect ratio for digital video nowadays?
    • 6:4
      • Incorrect. This is not a widely used image ratio.
    • 16:9
      • Correct. This is the most widely used aspect ratio for computer screens, mobile phones and tablets.
    • 9:16

  • If you want to include images in a video that you are making for the internet, what is the best file format to use for the final images?
    • .SVG

    • .JPG
      • Incorrect. The quality of JPG is lower than PNG, and the JPG format does not support transparency when you want to overlay images.
    • .PNG
      • Correct. Even though PNG results in a larger file size than JPG, it has better compression and supports transparency for overlaying images in video production.
    • .PDF
      • Incorrect. It is better to convert a PDF image into PNG for inclusion in video productions.
