Nawnal videos are fun to create and easy to share – millions of people have made videos about what interests them, shared their video, and connected with people who share their interest.
Users benefit from nawmal’s ease-of-use to quickly and easily communicate ideas, express personality, humor, and identity.
Finding their way to say what they want to say.
Nawmal acts as an assistive technology, and is helping a growing number of people with communication differences and difficulties to express themselves and connect with others.
Nawmal’s ease of use, appealing characters and unique user experience contribute to it’s use to enable and encourage communication and self-expression.
Cute fun tool that can be used by instructors or students to create a short animated movie with 2 characters. Students can give introductions, can present content, etc. It takes a little more work to get up and running than a talking head type tool such as Voki as there are several steps in creating the dialog but the result is engaging. The only downside to the tool is that each user is given a limited number of “credits” and once those credits are used up there is a cost to creating more animations. So only a limited amount of animations can be created free of charge.
Here’s a few educational examples: http://www.xtranormal.com/watch/12948991/all-about-me, http://www.xtranormal.com/watch/7887151/mrs-kleins-language-example, http://www.xtranormal.com/watch/11073434/biased-unbiased-samples
Creating a safe learning environment in a fully online course can be challenging at times. Some students do not mind posting pictures about themselves while other would rather not get so personal. Therefore, I use Extranormal for students to introduce themselves in the course. However, it can go beyond a community builder activity to relaying content. For example, the student could role-play as the content expert resolving a problem based on theory. This tool is interactive with limitless possibilities.
