The RSA Animate series of videos takes semi-dry lectures, then has an artist put the words to pictures, graphics, graphic organizers and thought-bubbles. For those of us (read, me) who are not artistic, but appreciative of art, this approach is wonderful. It is also great for those who like to share with students another way to transmit information to others. The payoff is later in the lecture, so it is definitely worth watching the entire 11 minutes.
