Wideo is a service that allows anyone to create animated videos and Common Craft-style videos online. You can create an animated video on Wideo by dragging and dropping elements into place in the Wideo editor then setting the sequence of animations. Each element can be re-used as many times as you like and the timing of the animation of each image can individually adjusted. Wideo’s stock elements include text, cartoons, and drawings. You can also upload your own images to use in your videos. Wideo’s promo video is embedded below.
Applications for Education
Wideo has the potential to be a great tool for students to use to bring their creative short stories to life. Wideo could also be used by students to create animated explanations of historical events, to animate biographies, or to teach other short lessons.
Thanks to Debbie Biddle for sharing Wideo with me in an email earlier this month.
