A Cartoon About Blinding: Using New Tools Can Be Fun

I had to make a few slides about blinding and decided a cartoon might be fun to make and a graphic way to display the information. As I am getting a degree in educational technology I have a proclivity to try new tools. I found an article on free cartoon making tools and decided to give one a try. It was intuitive and had reasonable features. I had initially planned to draw my own characters and put masks on them but in the interest of time just used the characters already in the program.

Try using new tools when you can and the situation fits. It can be fun and interesting. Always remember that the tool you use should facilitate learning and not just be used because its cool. I felt a graphic would help learners understand blinding more that just a word description.

What do you think?

A comic strip with 3 panels showing single blind (patient only), double blind (patient and researchers) and triple blind (patients, researchers, and statisticians).
