Using animations to help learners

Hello

My post looks like a lonely one here but perhaps it might reach the right person.

I am creating a musical storyworld where readers can learn the songs characters sing in original tales. I have created Disney-style animations for the scenes where the characters sing and made videoscores of them and would be interested to her what educators think. Do the animations spark the interest more, like here?

Or does it work better with the musicians there playing and no 'singer' (currently a mouse) so learners can add their own voice, karaoke style?

I am testing both approaches, which you can see under the sets Penelope and Tom Thorneval respectively. Please message me if you have some suggestions or would like to offer feedback (I've had about 80 downloads so far so I am guessing there are some folk out there are using the songs to teach and I would love to hear feedback).

MuseScore Example Manager - an extension for LibreOffice

I have been working on a system for managing the insertion of notated examples into text documents, using MuseScore for editing the examples and LibreOffice (or, presumably, OpenOffice) for the text documents. I have come up with something that could be generally useful to others, so I thought I'd share it. If I have dotted my i's and crossed my t's correctly, you should be able to download and install this facility as a LibreOffice extension:
