Animoto for Education


What is Animoto?

  • An amazing tool that allows teachers or students to create multimedia presentations that are simple to make and really cool to watch.

  • You just upload pictures, upload a song (or select from their extensive CC licensed music) and then Viola! You have an instant "MTV-Like" music video with cool transitions and editing.

  • Now you can even add text and choose pictures to highlight. There is even an iPhone app that allows you to create a presentation from the pictures stored on your phone.

  • Visit to get an "all-access pass" for you and your students.
