YouTube Create: Easy Digital Storytelling

Now it is even easier to create content for YouTube without even needing a video camera or webcam. YouTube has just launched ‘YouTube Create‘ a new portal pulling together three great animation tools: GoAnimate, Stupeflix, an Xtranormal, each of which lets you ‘build’ custom videos featuring virtual avatars, custom speech, and more. All three would be excellent resources to support digital storytelling.

From the YouTube Create portal, choose a tool, and you’ll jump into their editing interface where you can put together a video for free. Each of them also offers paid-for options (more sound options, animations, etc.) which you can pay to access.

It’s a much more seamless way to access these tools, and to get the finished product up onto YouTube. You’ll need to sign up with a YouTube account before you can access the tools. For more about Xtranormal, read my blog post from last year.
