Sample Multimodal Poem

As promised, I completed my sample multimodal poem for my Honors English 203 students. My first try was with Open Office Impress, but even on autoplay, it wasn’t quite what I wanted. I then tried iMovie. I hadn’t touch iMovie since 2003, and the version I used then was easy to use, but also tended to freeze. It’s even easier to use now, and no more freezing. All I had to do was assemble, caption, pick music from iTunes and then choose how I wanted to export it. I sent it to my MobileMe Gallery, and it’s available for viewing or download. [UPDATE: As long as MobileMe exists, which is until June 2012. it is now posted to YouTube]
