Like my classmate Benita Struik, I decided to create an animation video using GoAnimate to provide a review/tutorial of this creation tool. This was my first experience using GoAnimate. I have always wanted to try this tool and I feel it has great potential to assist with learning in my Grade 3/4 classroom. In the past, I have attempted to create videos using VideoScribe but found GoAnimate to be much more simple to navigate and user-friendly. Within this video, I explain how simple it was to sign up for GoAnimate as well as the strengths and weaknesses this online creation has to offer. Based on my recent experience, GoAnimate can be a very useful tool for learning. I hope you enjoy my video everyone! I do apologize in advance if the sound quality is not great.
I would like to note that I did have some difficulty posting my whiteboard animation video to my blog. When using the 14 day free trial, you are unable to share/export your videos. Therefore, in order to share my short video, I used a program called Screencast-O-Matic. This online tool allowed me to record my computer screen and then upload my recording to YouTube.
Please feel free to share your thoughts!
