India Travelogue

Why do I volunteer to give presentations (even when I have nothing prepared) … it’s because it forces me to organize my thoughts (or in this case, pictures) in a coherent way – in a way that I can easily share them with others. And so, somehow we ended up doing a Travelogue on our adventures in India. Today I am wearing my sari to work … I thought I would also share with all of you (each link opens a video, all built using Animoto). Here is Southern India: Cochin, Blog post: Sights in Cochin (about traveling in India with a blind man) and the Sari Department Store Backwaters of Kerala, Blog Post: Morning walk in the Backwaters Countryside of Kerala Wildlife in India Adventures in Madurai Train to Pondicherry, Blog Post: Notes from Train Car S5) Mamallapuram Mysore Jungle Retreat and Ooty Also, don’t miss my collection of strange newspaper articles from India Northern India New Delhi – Old Delhi Rural Rajasthan, Blog posts: Jeep Ride in Rural Northern India and If you think your job is pointless … Red Palace and the Taj Mahal (Taj Mahal photos here) There’s actually more to this part of the trip, but this is basically where I ran out of steam and started relaxing too much to blog (also getting Internet became harder). So for now, this is it. Why did...

Funky function notation

At the UMD faculty workshop, one of the participants had an idea for using an Animoto video.  She suggested it might be a good way to break up a long lecture time.  This got me thinking about short lessons (like the CommonCraft videos).  Just because the video is short, it doesn’t mean it’s not effective. I thought I would try out a short video of my own using Animoto.  This one is called “What is function notation?”  If the video doesn’t load for you, go directly to the site here or see the YouTube rendition here.  Either video can be embedded if you’d like to use them in a course shell. You might be interested in the process I used to build this.  For Animoto, you need a file folder with image files.  First, I created a deck of 75 PowerPoint slides (those being relatively easy to edit).  Then I printed from PowerPoint to SnagIt (because of a special SnagIt save option). Then I saved the SnagIt file as jpg files, where each slide is saved as an individual image file. This gave me a folder of all the slides, but with each slide saved as an image. I then uploaded the 75 images into Animoto and made sure they were in the proper order (for some reason the last slide fell first and had to be moved back...

Math and Technology Video Adventure

You’ve got to love the Internet. The photos are all from my old Teaching College Math Blogger account, which sends them to Picasa. Animoto compiles the video based on the song you choose. Animoto can get the images directly from Picasa. The video cost $3. What a wonderful technological world! If, for some reason, the sound doesn’t work for you, follow this link instead.
