When were you in Sultanahmet? Fabulous example of Ottoman architecture at its height.
In CTE319 we're going to use some of the animation tools in YouTube at http://youtube.com/create -- one of them is StupeFlix. This is not as sophisticated as Animoto, and the free version only allows a one minute slide show, but you can add captions to the photos, which I think could be an advantage in terms of English language teaching. Have a look and let me know what you think about Stupeflix.
