Educators need to decide which tool is best for them. If you want to create your own animation from scratch, then you want to go to sites such as Animwork. One of the easiest ways to animate, however, isn’t with your own camera and modeling clay, it’s with your links to sites that hand you everything within their own forums. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
