WordArt, a word cloud creator

Word cloud creators

Description: WordArt is an online tool for creating word clouds or word art from text. Users can input text, customise fonts, layouts, shapes, and colors, and generate word art images. Importantly, the first word introduced becomes the biggest one in the cloud, then the second one the second biggest, and so on. Unlike other similar tools to be found in this repository, word size is determined by the order of entry and not by the frequency of their use. WordArt.com is free to use and does not require users to sign up for an account.

Evaluation: WordArt is a useful tool to visualise text data or create artistic representations of words or phrases. For teachers, it can help collect all important words of a specific topic and get students to work with them. Again, WordArt is not the right tool to display word frequency - instead, it is users that decide which words will have more prominence by inputting them first. WordArt features a premium version for downloading professional quality images, but that is not necessary for classroom use.

Cost: Free + premium option available for professional quality downloading.
