GoAnimate

Page history last edited by Mr. Howard 6 years, 9 months ago

GoAnimate.com is an entertainment website that enables the simple creation of unique computer animated stories, satires and sentiments that can be shared with the entire online community. The site offers simple to more advanced innovative features that provide users with a multitude of possibilities for customizing their animations. They are constantly enhancing and adding features, popular licenses and animations from well known comedians, animators and writers.

Historically, the creation of animation required specific skills, limiting those who can express their creativity. They designed the Go!Animate application to allow users to create animations without drawing talent or a technical understanding of advanced software such as Flash. The site provides users with a library of interesting characters, backgrounds, props, sound effects and music for use in creating their own unique animations. Creators can customize their animations with a number of tools and features that allow them to create truly unique works of expression.

 

In class, we use the site as part of various projects - one such example is the Parts of a Computer WebQuest. In this webquest, the students put together commercials advertising a computer component.

 

Video Tutorials

The site has a number of video tutorials available at http://goanimate.com/howdoesitwork. Several are shown below (but there are others). In addition, there are some advanced tutorials at http://toonpub.webnode.com/advanced/.
