Animoto brings slideshows to life! By inputting pictures and music, you create your own animated videos to be viewed by friends, family, or your students. You can share your Animoto videos via email, post them to a website or blog, or download them to a computer to be used in a presentation.

You are able to include text among the pictures to educate or inspire your viewers, which makes Animoto very good for classroom use. However, the free version only allows you to make a thirty-second video. The yearly subscription offers you the ability to make feature-length videos, but the customer service is terrible if you ever need help or want to cancel your subscription.

Animoto is a great way to create graphic presentations. It can be use to create motion slideshows that can be shown in parties, such as weddings and other important celebrations. You can share it to friends and family afterwards; and/or store it so you can watch it later again. There is a free version that you can use and practice to see if you like it or not. So that it can help you decide if you want to purchase a subscription.

If you’re like me, bringing current global, national and local events into the classroom is always a high priority. The problem lies in how to make that happen while keeping it student-centered and of interest to them. When I first started teaching I would require my students to write summaries and/or make a poster board of their news story and present it to the class. Those days are long gone as students and teachers now have access to so many...

As first semester ends with a flurry of final exams and end of term projects, I wanted to find a quick way to celebrate my students’ accomplishments.

Animoto is a fantastic, easy-to-use web tool perfect for making professional looking videos....
