How I Use It
I use Animoto in my classroom as a tool for student created presentations. I give students the option to use the presentation tool of choice and Animoto gives them another tool. The students really like to use this site.
Animoto is easy to use. Students can use images, short videos, and music to create presentations. Text slides can be inserted which aids in the explanation of the pictures and videos. It is very easy to revise and move the slides to get the desired presentation.
Teachers can apply for a free education account (https://animoto.com/education/classroom). Once the account is created Animoto will email the teacher a code they can pass along to their students to use when creating their accounts. This allows students access to more templates and a longer presentation time than a regular account.
