Our first assignment was to create a digital story introducing one way our professional experience relates to educational technology and design. Several platforms were suggested to consider including VideoScribe. I've been enamoured of these whiteboard presentations for some time so I signed up for their seven day trial and am considering whether it is worthwhile to buy a membership in the future.
Here's my very first VideoScribe!
For future reference, and by means of thanks to our instructor, below is the directly quoted list of resources and tutorials from the Digital Storytelling course tab which she provided for our consideration. I didn't find these resources myself or write the info below, all the props go to Chelsey Hauge and her co-authors of etec510. I watched the first three basic tutorials from VideoScribe and found them very helpful. I will be watching the whole series if and when I decide to invest in this tool more permanently. One colleague created something via Creaza that looked pretty cool. I hope to check that out next.
