A challenge in co-teaching ORLD 5055 – Staff Development and Training has been to have students explore other possibilities than Powerpoint for training. This year I decided to infuse the course with examples of other choices, especially with content where students had questions or did not do well. This week I created a little movie on FAQ’s students had regarding their Organizational paper assignment. Below is my attempt using a free online tool called xtranormal found at http://www.xtranormal.com/ . Even though this tool is very simplistic, it can still be effective. I love animated characters and the research has shown that people identify with them. I would love to have the opportunity to try something more sophisticated such as Code Baby.
