Today we’re reviewing an eLearning video creation tool called Go!Animate, which enables the learning developer to create animated cartoon videos like the demonstration we created below. Creation of this demo took approximately 15 minutes and was designed using the free trial version. Overall, the ELN Technologies Research Lab found the free version useful to get a feel for the tool’s capabilities, but the paid version likely has more advanced features that have yet to be tested.
Depending on your needs, you can upgrade to a personal account, which is fairly inexpensive, or to a business account, which appears to have many more features. Check out our video below and then go explore the site to decide for yourself.
- Pros: Quick, user friendly, free options let you understand the capabilities before committing to an upgrade.
- Cons: You cannot go back and edit your video when using the free membership, and text to speech is not totally natural and may be somewhat distracting for some learners.
