Lineville Technology Units

On the other hand, I think it still pushes students to do their best they are when typing. I have become a more accurate, faster typer.
I also appreciate how they offer games. So that the can make typing more fun rather than something that students don't want to do. Overall, I enjoy some parts of Typing Web, while others I don't appreciate as much.
On the flip side though, they themes were very limited. Also, when you want to put in a video, it limits you to a very short time. This was challenging when we did our project because I had lots of video clips that I wanted to add more time onto, but couldn't.
I learned how to become better with making videos, and presenting them. Overall, I think that iTrailer could fix some errors, but other than that, I enjoyed making the project.
I enjoyed how we were able to insert pictures relating to the topic as the background of the slide. I also appreciated the use of the notes we were able to use so when we presented we had everything we needed to say in front of us, and didn't have to look on the screen.
It was also easy to present. You just slid over the current slide to the next, which is very helpful when presenting. I would highly recommend this app!
On the flip side, I do wish that you could have more than four different background choices. Along with this, I wish more than three colors of the pen, were given. When I did my presentation, that was one of the issues I ran into. I wanted to do so much more that they didn't give me.
Overall, I don't think that it was half bad. It wasn't my favorite, but I would use it again.
However, I did not like the fact that we only had limited amounts of characters. I also did not appreciate how when I used the text to talk option, it sometimes mispronounced the words I typed. Along with this, I didn't like how if you wanted text to be written, a hand comes up and writes it out. I would've liked it much better if the hand didn't appear.
To conclude, Go Animate was a fun and simple project. I would use it again, however, some things I didn't appreciate very much, and could use some fixing.
I never found to many bad things about the site. The only negative I would say is that the unit was very long. I felt like even though it was supposed to be the longest unit we had, it did ruin a little too long and I would've liked to spend some of that extra time on other units.
I thought that overall it was a good program! The overall time spent on this program, I didn't like as much.
