Welcome to the inventory of freely available online tools and open educational resources for language teaching and learning developed by the ICT-REV project! The inventory contains a list of tools that have been evaluated with specific criteria in mind. Read more

StoryboardThat

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 your story to life or you can use your own.

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 that you can create and the length of your story is restricted also. Best for short stories.

Cost: Free, with registration, premium plans available
