Tool 5: Web 5.0?
I played around with xtranormal and adimoto. Since xtranormal requires that you pay to publish the project I cannot embed the results right here. Though I am using blogger to talk about my experience with these tools, so that counts as another one right?
I did find it interesting at how quickly xtranormal was able to take anything I typed and synthesize it into voice. I could see some students using this to produce instructional items if they didn't want to talk on camera. Though having to pay for results is a bit of a downer.
I did produce an animoto using some pictures of a sidewalk chalk activity I did this year. I suppose I could have the students produce one of these to show off their work but you have to pay for anything longer than 30 seconds.
