The story of Fishing Village

Linda Buckmaster's curator insight, January 23, 2014 2:02 AM

Since Xtranormal ceased trading last year .. I have searched the web for a replacement without much success.  However, Plotagon runs a good close second; it is a tool that lets anyone create an animated movie directly from a written screenplay. Write your story, choose actors, environments and music. Press play and your movie is done. It's that simple.

I am piloting it now it's completely free and currently in beta stage, but you can start using it right now.

5 Social Networks Students Can Use To Find A Job | Edudemic | Resources for students | Scoop.it

The days when the Career Services of schools and universities were limited to CV Clinics and interview tips are long gone.
