Animation Made Easy: The best tools for student projects, from stop motion to GIFs. Very often, complicated ideas can be easily explained with simple drawings, as Dan Roam claims in his best-selling book The Back of the Napkin (Portfolio, 2009).
Case in point: The popular step-by-step video series In Plain English. Created by Common Craft, these simple productions synthesize various topics for learners, from social media to financial concepts. With accessible tools, you and your students can create your own simple animations to convey powerful ideas. Wideo allows anyone to make Common Craft-style animated videos online. Within the application, simply drag and drop stock elements—including text, cartoons, and drawings—into place with the Wideo editor and then set the sequence of animations.
