KC, thanks so much! Adobe Education Leaders like yourself are an inspiration. I've only watched 2 out of this series but will go back now to view the remainder.

And please do let us know about any additional formats you offer for these in the future.

Hey thanks Eva! It was a lot of fun making these and I'm hoping lots of teachers get creative with their students as a result!

Right now we are only offering them outside our school district in the Flash format that you see. But all of the movies are ready to be encoded into different formats, but that may be something we would have to charge for. Might be a good idea though. Burn the movies onto a disk for a nominal fee that schools could share among their staff.

We'll be releasing 2 hours of Soundbooth CS4 tutorials to complete the series in a couple of weeks. I'll talk with my bosses and see what they think about other means of distribution.

OMG- you and your team rock. This is perfect for us and greatly helps with what I need this week. Thank you for posting here and for sending it out on the AEL list!

Is it possible to download these onto an iPod?
