StoryboardThat

Principal function(s): Story creators

This is an easy-to-use tool for creating storyboards. Students can use different backgrounds, characters, text boxes, shapes and symbols to create their stories. There is a variety of images to choose from to help bring stories to life. Exported images can also be used. Evaluation: Great resource for creative writing exercises. Students can easily customise their characters and backgrounds to their liking and choose the layout of their storyboard. However, the free version limits the number of storyboards a user can create and the length of the story is restricted. Best for short stories.

Cost: Free, with registration, premium plans available
