Tuesday Tech Tip: Compatibility Pack & Avatars

Today’s Tip and Tool include:

Your tip:
A short (less than 2 min) video showing how to install the Office 2007 Compatibility Pack (in case you need to open newer versions of Word or Power Point files).
Written directions can be found here
A few fun tools:
If you use Moodle, you already know there’s a feature that allows you to use a “profile picture.”  If you’re interested in creating an avatar instead of posting an actual photo of yourself, here are four web tools that allow you to create a “cartoon-ified” image of yourself!
  • Build Your Wild Self (animalize yourself, then “print”, then right click to save the image as a jpeg)
  • Make yourself a LEGO character (customize your LEGO, follow the directions to “How to Save”)
  • Make yourself an M&M character (you must register to save your character)
  • Create a Mii (just like on the Wii) (create, then EXPORT your character)

Last week’s winner for the Thinkfinity drawing was Aimee Glennon! For all those who sent me links, thank you!
