The Quicktime movie was an interesting (euphemism) project in itself. Thanks to the latest beta version of the creation software, the only remaining problem with the clip is my voice <grin>. Nevertheless I think the main point comes across. Future clips will likely feature another voice replacing my own dulcet tones.
Ideally I would like to create a number of short clips like this that beginning Latin students could view on their own computers. The clips would complement standard introductory texts while giving the students something to hold on to. Hopefully the use of sound and motion will appeal to some of the various ways of learning found among students.
Addendum (Sat, 29 Apr 2000) - There are now two clips, on their way to three.
I would be very eager to receive feedback about these clips from other Latin teachers.
