Paul shared his experience of using animations to support learning and teaching in higher education. The idea is that animations on Moodle pages and pedagogic web sites provide an engaging and immersive experience for students that can be used in a number of different ways. Paul found that animations usefully supplement podcasts, and screen video recordings to provide a rich and varied online learning environment.

A number of ways of using animations were discussed including:

  • To overview student resources
  • To talk through assessment details
  • To provide brief summaries of key ideas
  • To vividly capture complex, illusive and difficult ideas

Some examples of the animations used can be found by via this link:
