PowToons – Create animated clips


PowToons is an online animated presentation tool that allows users to create animated video clips using a range of templates, images and transitions. The software is simple to use, making it ideal for teachers to create content, as well as being a useful tool for students to create presentations or display a range of information.

Impact On Learners

PowToons provides templates for characters and scenes which students can adapt and use to create short animations.  I have used this to facilitate students in an engaging way to improve their speech and language skills.  This app is also useful to help students with planning their work and working collaboratively with others. – Colin Power

The eLearning Rating

We have found PowToons an extremely useful too for displaying presentations in a slightly different way. The user interface is extremely simple and there are plenty of templates for you to choose from. The control you have over what your ‘toon’ does is incredible and we love the way it comes together as a presentation. One of the main issues we have with this app, is that it is only available as a web version and there are currently no apps available for tablets or phones.
