 ATDps: November 2018 South Sound Chapter Meeting

Action, Story and Context


When you need to engage eyeballs on the screen, you need to keep things moving. Animated scenes help to tell a story that people remember, but many corporate e-learning developers don’t have the experience in advanced tools like PowToons, Captivate, and CrazyTalkAnimator to bring characters to life.

In this session, guest facilitator and master story crafter, Katie Stroud, will show you ways to animate your message and create characters that come to life. She’ll engage you in a live demonstration and build talking characters using your voice. Bring a computer and download the free version of CrazyTalk Animator to follow along. No experience required.

Key Takeaways:

  • Explore reasons to animate your content.
  • Discuss technology options and hacks for animation.
  • Participate in a live demo for building animated characters and scenes.
