Change-up your Course Intro with Animoto

In an online environment, it can be difficult and time consuming to design content that grabs a student's attention on day one.  Animoto is a web tool that presents educators with an easy-to-use set of templates for creating short videos to use in the online classroom.  They embed easily into Desire2Learn, and educators can apply for a free account to increase their maximum video length from thirty seconds to three minutes.

Here is a video that I created to introduce students to BIOL 120.

On March 18, the CTE is offering a workshop to help you get started using Animoto.  See the CTE Workshop Calendar for more details, or contact Meg Elias at
