Practical Ed Tech Tip of the Week – Create Animated Videos and Presentations on Wideo

Wideo is a neat service for creating animated, Common Craft style videos in your web browser. I’ve been using and talking about the service for a couple of years now.  When you create a video in Wideo you do so by dragging and dropping clipart and text in storyboard frames. You set the position and animation sequence for each element in each storyboard frame. When you have completed your storyboards Wideo generates a video for you. The new presentation mode in Wideo will allow you to present each frame of your video independently just like in a slideshow. Watch the video below to learn more.
