Toony Tool

Principal function(s): Story creators

Toony Tool is an online cartoon, comic and meme creator. Users can design their cartoons, comics and memes using the images, characters and props provided on the website, or they can use their own images. Once finished, they have the option to share it online or download and print it out. Evaluation: This is a great resource for making cartoons, comics and memes. It is best suited for younger students as the characters and props are a bit juvenile and seem to be aimed at a younger audience. It is not possible to save one's progress and come back at a later time but it is a useful teaching aid for creative writing activities, for example. Its interface is very simple and easy to use.

Cost: Free, registration unrequired
