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.
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
It always happens. I see an image 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!
