ELTS - Xtranormal

This workshop is really about using a web2.0 tool, xtranormal.

Xtranormal is a web based animation tool with the capacity to display expressions and emotions.

As a tool, it provides a quick and easy way to create custom animations without the hassles previously associated with animations. All information is also saved on the websites servers eliminating the need for large storage devices.

Additionally, the software allows for reediting after publishing. Thus, this would allow the teacher to give feedback and students can make the necessary changes.

However, in order for the works to be published, the video must first be uploaded into Youtube before publishing it to a blog.

Verdict: Good novelty tool. Maybe an assessment option for creating narratives and characterizations. Otherwise, its better suited for literature than purely EL.
