Meet Robbie, maybe a librarian of the future or an information interface. Robbie is going to explain the concepts of the Hyperlinked Library; I think he got his ideas from taking this course LIB287.
Robbie was created using the website Xtranormal. This was the first time I used the service (which is free up to a point). I was really happy with the results as the video while being previewed but when it fully rendered, the speech was not as consistent. There are unusual pauses at places that I did not intend.
