Someone posted an article about tools that can be used to as a means of establishing a presentation. Powtoon was one of the sites listed. I had to check it out. I LOVE it. I have finally found a free site to make really nice, crisp presentations that can be published directly to YouTube, and it's really easy.
I created my free account, which can link to Google+, Facebook or LinkedIn. You can also use an email account to establish it. It has you determine if you are a student or a teacher, which I liked. I established a teacher account, so I am not sure what appears on the student side. I made a quick thirty second presentation in about five minutes. It was easy and there were a lot of options available to make a nice slideshow. It was quick, simple and definitely something I would use again to make some slides for the library. I can use it for tutorials, new release videos (I use Animoto now, but maybe I can mix it up and use this as an alternative.) I think the kids would enjoy seeing the presentations and would benefit from them.
This is a very simple, free product for the kids and staff to use. I hope some of them try it out.
