PowToon

I found a new tool for teachers and students, Powtoon.com. Powtoon is a way to make short videos with voice-over and music to help sell products, sell individuals with video resume’s, as well as educational offerings and many other things. The program is free OR you can subscribe to get more bells and whistles. If your an educator or a student PowToon has special rates for teachers and students. http://powtoon.com is well worth looking at. I’ve made a few and you can make them as easy or as complex as you want.

For this assignment I used one of their templates http://www.powtoon.com/show/bpu76VOrSjY/clinical-mission-impossible/

This short tutorial for my students started with a blank slate http://www.powtoon.com/show/cUnVXpkSaQk/the-basic-formula/

This third example took a bit longer, no template, has both music and voice-over. the timing took a bit of time to do. http://www.powtoon.com/show/eUMHANMpGrx/ratio-and-proportion/

Using CoSketch.com

CoSketch.com is a free whiteboard program that will allow you to create and share whiteboards with others and embed them into your BLOG.  I’m going to use their app to put a whiteboard here. Not all of it appeared to be visible on my preview.

The rest of this was created at their site not using their link that allows you to creat a simplified version.

You can link to your whiteboard by a direct link or you can use a thumbnail picture that will link to the site.

Please give it a try at http://CoSketch.com
One thing I did not show is that you can use google maps as a background to give directions. A nice feature.

Let me know what you think about it.
