Animoto.com – 50 Free Upgraded Plus Accounts

  • Anyone can register for free and make short videos using Animoto in just a few minutes.
  • I just discovered that Educators can now get 50 Free upgraded student accounts for 6 months by registering on their website.
  • Animoto will send you a code via email to use to set-up the accounts.
  • These Upgraded accounts allow students to create videos up to 10 minutes in length.  These ‘Plus’ accounts give students access to more features within the program.  Also, the videos do not have a watermark in the background.
  • The following screen shots and instructions show you how to obtain the free accounts…
