Continuing the project, and also posted on my online teaching blog, is this Blabberize. Blabberize wants you to do the speaking, so using Snapz Pro X, I recorded the audio from the GoAnimate. Then I converted it to mp3 in Audacity, and uploaded it to Blabberize. The result, Scott Lo told me, wasn’t viewable on iPad, so I did what everyone does who can’t get things to work – uploaded to YouTube.
This also uploaded to YouTube, a whole thing in GoAnimate (which I had to record with Snapz since they don’t let you save with the free account):
The software is Plotagon, which is free and in beta. It was shared with me by Tom Hodgers, a member of the POT Cert class, because I was looking for a replacement for the now defunct Xtranormal. I ran it on Mac OS 10.6 even though it requires 10.7. Then I uploaded to Vimeo, until I realized they (still) don’t have captions. So I uploaded to YouTube, put in the script for the new transcribing service, and then used a special embed code (cc_load_policy=1) to force the captions to show.
I liked it enough to make it my own Video Assignment (#1225).
More on the pedagogy at my other blog…
I saw some of these from Laura Gibbs (she also posts great Latin LOLcats) and just had to make one. The idea is to take a Shakespeare quotation combined with a cat pic. I’m adding it as a Visual Assignment.
A limerick about a very famous person (via cogdog). OK!
One should not ever disparage
the Queen as she rides in her carriage
she’s a symbol of wealth
and in excellent health
she signed to approve same-sex marriage
