Working with PowToon in the classroom (for students)

Welcome to a new and exciting way for you to create PowToons and post them directly to your instructor’s classroom page. The first thing you will need to do is to click on the signup link that your teacher will send to you by email. Once you have created your own account, you are ready to have fun with PowToon. Here’s How:

Once you are registered as a student, you will be directed to this main page. It is from here where you will start the journey of creating PowToons. You just need to click the “start” button in order to begin your PowToon masterpiece.

After you hit the start button, you will be prompted to create a name and description for your PowToon. Below that you will see a dropdown menu where you can assign your PowToon to a group, either under your teacher’s name or another group name that your teacher provides.

There are several educational templates that you can use to create PowToons, but templates are discussed in another article. We are going to show you in this tutorial what to do once your PowToon has been created.

After you have created your PowToon and you wish to submit it to your teacher, click on the “save” icon at the top left of the screen. How to make animated presentations with PowToon for EDU
