My new animoto

Animoto is a very easy tool to use. The registration is free and you can create 30 - second videos with music. You can also apply for Animoto Edu and create your full length videos for free. That's what I have done.
Creating a video consists of three steps:

  1. you upload photos and decide if you want to add any text and where. Then you put your slides into the order you want to tell a story. It's a simple drag and drop activity.
  2. You choose music for your video. You can upload music from your computer, and you are reminded to respect the copyright. I always choose from the songs already offered by Animoto team. I find it easier and they have a lot of beautiful songs in different styles.
  3. You check that you have everything you wanted (the right title, tags, etc) and click "Create". Then you only wait. The video is created for you.

    This is the animoto I have created to introduce myself in Digital Storytelling Group of TESOL EVO. Please be gentle in your comments.


  1. Thank you Sanja for the site. Really good! :)

  2. This IS a whole story and tells us so much about you. I love it and I love the way you put it together so well! :)

  3. I really like this!! :) I can't wait for the exam to pass...

  4. I like you, your avatar and your animoto! I will make my own animoto, too! That is such a good idea!

  5. Thank you, Lora. I hope you'll share your animoto here.
    Are interested in Second Life for education? A lot of universities organize some activities for their students in Second Life. It seems to have a lot more advantages than disadvantages.
