Xtranormal: Easy 3D Movie Maker

I just discovered Xtranormal this morning and am still getting the hang of it but it is really easy to get started and it seems that you can get a lot out of the free version. I will post back more after I show it to some teachers and see what sort of classroom use we can get out of it. It would appear to fulfill a similar niche to our comics. I wouldn't use it for long movies but for kids to throw together a quick dialogue to embed it would work great. i am thinking it would be useful for a unit about conflict resolution. You could start scenarios off and then have students take over where the videos leave off and they could try to resolve the conflict.


  1. Everything is very open with a really clear
    description of the challenges. It was truly informative.

    Your website is extremely helpful. Many thanks for sharing!

  2. Pretty great post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wanted to
    say that I have truly loved surfing around your weblog posts.
    After all I'll be subscribing for your feed and I am hoping you write once more very soon!
