WordArt

WordArt is a word cloud creator that allows you to create unique and fun word clouds. It is user-friendly and customizable. Users can experiment with different shapes, colors and designs. The first word you type in the word input list will be the biggest word in the cloud, then the second etc. In this it is unlike the other tools to be found with the word cloud creator filter of this repository, which determine word size by frequency.

Evaluation: Useful tool for collecting words on a certain topic or getting your students to work with vocabulary in this way. You determine which words will be biggest by the order you put them in. WordArt gives good control over the look of the output, but is not the tool you want for word frequency visualisation. There is a premium version for downloading professional quality images from WordArt, but that would not be needed for classroom use.

Cost: Free with registration (premium options available)
