Animoto Makes Improvements

Animoto has been featured on Free Technology for Teachers many times over the last year and is included in Twelve Essentials for Technology Integration. And just when I think Animoto has reached the zenith of awesomeness, they make more improvements. In an email that I received today from Animoto I learned that they have made infrastructure improvements that will improve upload times and decrease buffering times. These improvements should make for a better user experience at times of peak activity on the site. The Animoto video player has also been improved for ease of use.
