Everyday we visit great flash based web sites. The animations and special effects make them look more interesting than traditional static pages. However, most human beeings dont have adequate skills, enough time or they just lack the motivation to make such content. For all of them, more and more services are coming into light with an aim to faciliate production of flash content. The one that I like personally is called GoAnimate. Its an easy to use tool which gives a possibility to create great flash scenes within few minutes. We choose background and characters thay will play in our movie. Next in the following scenes we choose actions that our "actors" will perform and…thats all, out movie is ready!!:) Now we can export it to your blog or account at most popular social network. As a result we get something like this:
The only disadvantage I have found is lack of some mechanism that would allow keeping our flash productions localy on a harddrive.
You may ask how to use it in e-learning? Well, dialogues are a great way to teach and they can be put as a flash animation within your e-learning courses to enrich it. My friends were amazed when I have showed them my first animations so in my opinion its a great way to make our content more attractive and user friendly:) Try it! You won’t regret it;)
