    I use Flipgrid to allow students to share their work with each other. For example, my students created some artwork based on a prompt. Then, they used Flipgrid to record their work and explain their choices. I also required them to comment on each other’s work to make sure they watched the videos

    Powtoon

    Powtoon is a very capable suite of tools that help a developer create training videos that look way better than they should. I've used it to create fun, attention-getting commercials for new topics, I've used it to enhance what would otherwise be boring step-by-step tutorials, and I've used it to create all manner of "Explainer videos" for all kinds of topics - this is where it EXCELS! In my opinion, its biggest limitations are limits on imported video (max of 90 seconds), which mean that you have to do a lot of extra work to break up and import anything of substantive length. And because it presents your personal library of imported images and audio ONLY sequentially, it's VERY LIMITED in the re-usability of those assets - it's way faster to just import a new instance of an image and audio than to try to find it in your library.

    Cons

    Microsoft

    • Fligrid can improve using mixed tapes. I feel if it's not pointed out, teachers don't necessarily know it can be done.
    • When setting up the topic, some of the personalization choices are hard to find or down the page. It would be easier to choose the most used settings and making them the default - like the privacy settings.
    • I also believe the word Grid should be substituted with class. Teachers are always confused about what the Grid and topic are.

    Powtoon

    • Only one timeline to edit from which sometimes makes it difficult to select objects.
    • Animations can only be set to ½ seconds. Sometimes more precise amounts of time are needed.
    • Although there are a bunch of different actions you can place on a character, it's almost impossible to create a custom action within the program.

      Support Rating

      Microsoft

      Flipgrip is great for supporting educators. They provide opportunities for teachers to learn the program and become ambassadors for the program. They are also responsive to questions and concerns through many different modes. That includes online communities, email, and Facebook communities. They are eager to meet and troubleshoot with you and are also eager to meet educators at conferences and meetings.

      I have never needed the support feature. As I mentioned, everything was intuitive to me however I have taught myself Adobe, Final Cut and iMovie so most of these programs became intuitive.

      Alternatives Considered

      Microsoft

      Flipgrid is a game changer, working in a similar fashion to these other applications, but offering much more in terms of teacher control and implementation inside the classroom. Teachers can create lesson plans that incorporate options for Flipgrid to be utilized as a formative assessment tool to better gauge student comprehension and understanding.

      Powtoon has the advantage over traditional video editing software in terms of the library of characters and elements that can be easily dragged and dropped onto the canvas. Powtoon is easier to use and has a more intuitive user interface than Vyond.

      This product is straightforward to implement and share across our building and district. As a large district, it was not difficult to train staff and have them feel at ease implementing the program.

      Return on Investment

      • I am not saying it was a bad investment but I did not get the return I expected.
      • I considerably increased the number of clients after using this platform.
      • The price for which you pay to use its functions unlimitedly is acceptable and adapts to the use that you want to give it.
