PowToon is an easy to use resource that allows users to create animated videos and presentations. An instructor could use PowToon to enhance lectures or a student could use PowToon to create entertaining presentations. Creating a PowToon presentation allows the user to add visually appealing backgrounds and animations with audio and text that will keep viewers engaged.
There are several options in terms of creating an account with PowToon. Users even have the ability to create an account for free. On the other hand, users have the option to select a premium or educational account in order to access additional features. To try an educational account, please visit: http://www.powtoon.com/edu-home/. An educational account allows users to create a “classroom” through PowToon, add students to their class, and view student presentations. This is useful for instructors who wish to have easy access to student presentations. The PowToon blog (http://www.powtoon.com/blog/) includes several examples of PowToon presentations.
