Final version of my Summary of Learning

I had quite a bit of fun doing my Summary of Learning. I ended up doing quite a few versions of it. I tried out a number of different tools and ended up choosing Xtranormal. I would have to agree with Lindsay in regards to the pros and cons of this tool. I do love that I didn’t have to record my own voice. I tried that a couple of times and I didn’t like how I sounded. It took me a while to get the final tweaks done on my project (and I am still not happy with some of the camera angles but I couldn’t seem to change them) but I think I can confidently say that I am happy with my final product. I hope you enjoy.

Thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks to my wonderful classmates, I have spent a large amount of time today playing around with different tools on-line. I have often seen different posters where there are a number of different words all centered around one theme but I have never known how to create one myself. Thanks to Judy, I have now discovered Wordle and I love what you can do.

While discovering this tool, I have also figured out how to take a snapshot of my screen. This took me quite a while to do, but after lots of playing around I was able to figure it out. It was remarkably easy to do. On my computer I had to use a tool called “Snipping tool”, but once I figured that out, I can now “snip” anything I want. I don’t know for sure if this is how it is supposed to be done, but that was the only way I could get it to work.

Thanks to Katy, I have discovered a tool called Picnik. This tool is amazingly simple to use and so much fun. I think I might just use it to make our family¬† Christmas picture this year a little more interesting. I can’t wait to play around with it. For all of you who were wondering what my daughter might look like, I used this tool on one of her many pics that I have taken.

Thanks to Chelsi’s wonderful work with Xtranormal, I thought that I would give that a try also. It was really easy to use. I could have done more tweaking on my video, but I really was just playing around. The only downside that I could find with this tool is that there are Xtranormal Points needed to publish your video. Once you purchase a character you can use them over and over again, but at a certain point, if you continued to use this tool, you would need to put some money into it. Anyway, here is the video that I did.
