Go Animate - Make Your Own Animated Film

Go Animate is a feature rich free animated movie maker. On Go Animate users can create animated movies by selected from a wide selection of customizable pre-made elements. Users can also upload their own elements like pictures or drawn images to use in their animated movies. Each frame of the animated movie can have many layers and timings. The movies that Go Animate users create can be shared in a variety of ways including email and embedding.

Below is a simple 13 second animated movie I made this morning using Go Animate.

Applications for Education
Go Animate is a great alternative to expensive proprietary animated movie making programs. Students can use Go Animate to tell stories and make presentations. Students might use Go Animate to make animated book reports. Students might also use Go Animate to illustrate a story that they have written in class.
