Sutori

A former colleague sent me an email about a new product called Sutori.  This is a storytelling tool and looks like it has potential.  I am always cautious regarding these new startups however I have this on my list to try.  I can see it being used in a number of different applications.  I love the look and the way you can create small snippets of information that can contribute to a whole.  It can also be used for a timeline or for story collaboration.  I just love it.  This tool also integrates with Google Classroom so it would be useful in the K-12 classroom.  I have to remember this tool for my Instructional Design Capstone students.

Here is an example …  https://www.sutori.com/story/aztec-inca-may and their blog showcases well what the product can do.

Adding Fonts to a PC

This week I received some .eps files for a side job.  Because I didn’t have the font,when I opened them up in Illustrator, the characters were jumbled together.  We fixed the issue by having the graphic designer convert the text to outlines.  However, I did look for the missing font for possible purchase and I was reminded how I can never remember how to install a new font on my PC.  I came across this video, in the Articulate Community.

Here is a SCREENR, on how to do so …http://www.screenr.com/qI7

TinEye

It always happens.  I see an imtineyeage I want to use, pop it into my PowerPoint, forgetting to cite where I got the image.  Later, when using the presentation in a more formal setting, I go back to see if I can find where the image originally came from, all in vain.  Today, Tom Kuhlman, in his blog, The Rapid E-Learning Blog talked about TINEYE, a reverse image site that searches the Internet for the image and lists sites where it’s found.  I tried it with a couple of images – works like a charm.  Perfect!
