The following links to comic strips made using stripcreator have been contributed as part of the OU 'Learning in an Open World' conference (22 -23 June 2010 - see http://cloudworks.ac.uk/cloudscape/view/2012). Please add any questions or comments here.
Anthea Wilson: "I had a little play around with stripcreator, having seen Martin's examples on this site. I started off thinking what might be helpful for K101 students and decided to reflect some of the stories that students share about themselves on the course-wide forums and generally thinking about the FAQs that crop up in the forums. I attached the link to one of the pages on this site, but can't always find it again - but here's the link http://www.stripcreator.com/comics/acrobat/0 Hope you like them!"
Francis Chetwynd: "Hi Anthea, I love your K101 cartoons. I think many students would find them a really amusing way to find out about course related stuff. As I have 10 TMAs to mark I took some serious marking avoidance action by creating a cartoon to represent one of our 'Top ten tips on how to fail the ECA' on T175. It's here http://www.stripcreator.com/comics/Frances41/494779/
Unfortunately I forgot to put any background in before I published it but I think I'll have a go at illustrating the other 9 tips."
