Making My First Moovly – Professional-looking tool for classroom animations

I’ve always been a fan of Common Craft Videos, as have my students. I also like the idea of RSA (Really Simple Animations – see this cool example from Chris White) but have seen some students get frustrated with neatness. That’s why I was so excited to find out about Moovly and was even more excited when our school made the deadline for free education accounts.

I’ve not tried it with kids yet, but I did show the one I made last week to my students. Definitely received a positive response. This video took me around an hour, from start to finish, including storyboarding.

What stands out about this product?

  • Fits my price-point
  • Totally web-based tool (great for laptops or Chromebooks)
  • Professional-looking product with minimal effort means users can focus more on content
