Creaza Education offers to users. This free application, with additional benefits for paid subscriptions, is open to students. For those under fifteen years of age it is requested that parents or guardians give them permission to do so.
Creaza has four components. By clicking on each of the named component tabs at the bottom of the web site home page explanatory videos can be viewed for each.
Your cartoon will be organised into a strip with several frames, which can be presented both on the web and printed out on paper.
I selected the Little Red Riding Hood scenario. Background, characters, animals, props and cartoonist effects are elements that can be added to each frame of the cartoon. Adjustments and enhancements can be made to each of those.
When you register a unique URL is assigned to your account. By using this URL your homepage and all your digital productions can be seen. Comments can be left by viewers as well as a starred rating.
Each of the individual files designed using the four tools also has a unique URL and HTML code which can be embedded as shown above. In order to "release" those URL and HTML codes prior to opening the file move the mouse over the small blue button beneath the frame making sure it says unshared.
This is a wonderful free web 2.0 application , simple to use but sophisticated in the finished piece.
