This add-in allows you to add illustrated comic characters to your presentations. By using Pixton PALs (Pedagogical Agents for Learning) you can increase engagement and comprehension, and make your presentations more fun and interesting. PALs are computer-generated training assistants; they can present course material, interact with the learner, and provide social encouragement – in much the same way a live instructor might.
The Pixton add-in works by allowing you to select from a varied cast of preset characters, and add them directly into your presentation. Characters come in different ages, ethnicities, and genders. Once a character is selected you can choose a clothing style and an appropriate pose. You can even add a speech bubble to your character.
