Text and the Heart–a video about text placement

Your text placement can help or hinder your students learning by impacting cognitive load–which either increases or decreases learning capacity & video effectiveness.  It also lets you know where you should place text in your videos and other instructional aids. The video features Dann as he highlighting portions of Ruth Covlin Clark and Richard E Mayer’s text “e-Learning and the Science of Instruction.”

The iPhone 11 and the Little Prompter

The iPhone 11 Pro does what photographers and videographers have wanted for years, it offers a smartphone with a true optical zoom–without diminishing resolution. Now with the three camera system that features a telephoto lens, the iPhone 11 Pro has set itself above its competitors. Coupled with the lightweight and portable Little Prompter, an iPhone 11 Pro makes your video production studio even more mobile. This short video walks users through how the two impressive tools can help make your video production . . . flawless. Visit http://www.littleprompter.com for more information on the Little Prompter, (and you can find information on the iPhone 11 Pro at your favorite Apple dealer).

From an Actress and University Faculty

It’s great to hear from folks about how they’re using their Little Prompters. Today I received this short email from a university instructor and actress:

“Hi Dann, Thank you for the prompt response and information.  I’m looking forward to using the Little Prompter – both as an instructor at [University] and as an actress.  This is going to make the world of self-submits so much easier!Thank you again, [Name].”

A big thanks to this customer for giving Little Prompter a try, and I continue to enjoy hearing how instructors, actors, directors, small businesses, and churches and charities are benefiting from the Little Prompter!
