Make Animated Videos in the Classroom

Easy learning curve. Low budget. Simple do-it-yourself tools.

Create Videos in a Safe Online Environment

Privacy and Security

Each implementation is its own private, secure "walled garden"

  • Student videos cannot be accessed by the public
  • Student videos cannot be published publicly, without teacher approval
  • School login page can only be found by those who know the exact URL
  • Students cannot surf public video sites from within GoAnimate for Schools
  • No integration with social networks
  • Student email addresses and contact info are never collected

Group Management

Segment your students into classes and workgroups

  • Teachers can divide students into classes and/or workgroups
  • Student video distribution is limited to the classes/groups to which they belong
  • Great way to block younger students from seeing the videos of older students


Stop bad words in their tracks

  • Teachers have the option to moderate student videos before the videos become visible to the group
  • Teachers can approve or reject student-created videos and comments

Safe Online Content

All assets have been scrubbed to be appropriate for a student audience

  • We have ensured that all characters, backgrounds, props, etc. are appropriate for a K-12 audience
  • You won't find "assets" like weapons, alcohol, or violent actions in GoAnimate for Schools

Powerful Tools at the Click of a Mouse

Add a character, swap a background, or start a scene just by dragging and dropping.

Videos for a Wide Range of Uses

GoAnimate for Schools is used by hundreds of thousands of students, in thousands of schools, on 6 continents.

Flip Your Classroom By Sending Home Videos

In a flipped classroom, students learn through online instruction outside of class; “homework” is done in the classroom. Students are much more likely to watch or create a video at home than they are to read a textbook or write a paper.

Introduce Topics and Lessons

Teach new and difficult topics with video. Use animation to simplify complex ideas. Illustrate word problems.

Create Presentations

Use video at open houses, back-to-school nights, assemblies, staff meetings, and other events.

Create Reports and Stories

Have students make reports, presentations, and stories with video, helping them convey their creativity and perspectives without physically placing them in front of peers.

Check for Understanding

Teachers can “check for understanding” with video assignments.

Engage Special Needs Students

Students on the Autism spectrum find animated videos to be a great way to communicate and share their feelings.

Practice Language Skills

Practice grammar, spelling, foreign languages, and sentence structure with our text-to-speech technology. Great for language learners!

Produce PSAs

Students can create videos on respect, bullying, and a variety of other topics.

Engage Higher-Order Learning Skills

Adapting material to video requires both critical thinking AND creativity. Students are enthusiastic about making videos. They think it’s fun. This also leads to deeper understanding and learning.
