PowToon

Tool for creating short animated video presentations. Interface is easy to use and there are a variety of tutorials to help you create your own PowToons. There are a variety of different templates to choose from, depending on the content of your presentation. These include cartoons and infographics.

Evaluation: Good resource for classroom presentations. The design is inviting and would make the process of creating presentations more interesting for students. It would also be a good resource for teachers to present information to their students. There is a free version available, however the length and size of your videos are restricted but this shouldn’t be an issue for use in school assignments for example.Also, users are not allowed to republish the materials on another site! This may limit the use of this resource.

Cost: Free, with registration, premium plans available
