This looks brillant. I’ll admit now, I haven’t tried it yet. But I did watch the ‘How to…’ video below and can think of several ways this software could be used in the classroom.
Muvizu allows you to create 3D animations using a variety of characters and scenes – all customisable. You choose camera angles, lighting and direct your characters down to the eye movements. This would be a brilliant way to show stories the pupils have written or recreate stories they have heard.
You have to be 13 to join Muvizu but teachers can open ‘gatekeeper’ accounts that enable you to have full control over what pupils are doing. Once videos have been published they can be rated and be commented on.
Once you have created your masterpiece you save it to your computer and there is an inbuilt option to upload it straight to YouTube to embed in your blog.
