Reflection of Animoto Anatomy

I recently employed the use of Animoto as the delivery method for my Human Anatomy and Physiology’s research project on skin disorders. The students generally enjoy this topic. I do the research project every semester, but traditionally the students will either turn in a report or do a PowerPoint presentation.  This year I had them submit their findings through Animoto movies. The students were excited to show their work.

Pros of this delivery method

  • Students gained experience with an emergent technology.
  • Students were more engaged by the audio/visual experience provided by Animoto.
  • The approach was novel.
  • Music that is free to use
  • Images that are licensed for use
  • Low character count on titles forces students to use short, powerful statements

Cons of Animoto

  • Character limit is restrictive

    Limited to about 30 seconds per presentation

  • Limited selection of images
  • Character count for text is very low, sometimes it impossible to convey all the required information
  • Does not embed into my Schoolwires blog or Animoto

Changes I will make for the next semester

I will use Animoto again next semester in Human Anatomy and Physiology. There are a few modifications that will be made to the project.

  • Students will also learn to prepare their report
    • in a basic html document, which they will learn to create.
    • Student will embed their Animoto presentations in their report
  • Instructor will post the reports as webpages.
  • Students
