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.
