Word Processors

The Comp Apps girls seemed to enjoy my offbeat antics today. In order to introduce formatting documents in our section on Word Processing, I started out with a headset microphone and infomercial style hard sell. I tried my best to impersonate the late Billy Mays. I then led into a quick Will It Blend video illustrating how powerful my word processor was.
By that time I had either confirmed their suspicions or won them over. We continued with some animated practice with the textbook's data files and wrapped up the class with saving a word doc in HTML. Overall a good class. It will be interesting to see how the guys respond tomorrow.
