  1. Hi,

    I was doing some research when I came across your very helpful website (and this page in particular). The list is great, and you did a wonderful job putting it together!

    I might just recommend another tool to be added to the list. It’s called Animatron ( It’s great for teaching and learning with animation since it allows working right in the browser; there is no need to download or install anything. In fact, it’s the only collaborative animation & video maker in the world that allows a few people to work on a project in real time together, and this is super important when making an explainer video, or when you want to collaborate with your student and teacher colleagues on the same project. There are hundreds of pre-animated characters and props one can use to start animating in minutes, completely online.

    There are actually a great number of features available for free, and we hope more educators will learn about the software.

    Here’s what Larry Ferlazzo says about Animatron:

    And here’s a review by Richard Byrne:

    I will be thrilled if you decide to tell your readers about Animatron. Please let me know if I can provide any further information to make the process easier.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Best regards,
