Project Details

In this project, you will be creating an animated video to tell your story with PowToon. These animated videos will be done in groups and uploaded to YouTube. The PowToon tool is a free web-based video editing tool that works very similarly to PowerPoint or Google Slides, but the output of this tool allows you to create rich animated videos to tell your stories.
