Animaker is an online tool that can be used to make short animation videos.
These animation videos can be used to give a story a bit extra; adding music, having text appear while you are reading it, and introducing animation characters. By turning a text in an animation video, you don't only create a more appealing format, you also have full control of what your audience sees, and when they see it.
Example of an assignment using Animaker:
You have been asked to write a promotion text for a school excursion to London. Instead of a plain text, you decide to create a short animation video promoting the trip. Make an animation video wherein you try to convince your students that they should sign up for the excursion.
