"Moovly is a free online tool that lets you create interesting presentations and animations. You can incorporate both the hand-drawn style of apps such as VideoScribe and the hand-moved objects style that you’ll have seen in videos such as CommonCraft.
"Moovly lets you add voice, sound and music and synchronize everything using the simple timeline interface. Animations such as “hand drawn”, “drag on” and “drag off” can be added via the timeline. Some of the clips from the library also have their own animations attached to them, such as globes which spin or chickens which feed.
"Videos can be published via YouTube or Facebook, or can be downloaded for offline use as Flash or Movie files. Free videos are watermarked with a Moovly Logo. There doesn’t seem to be a way to embed them directly from the Moovly website. Downloading may well be the best option for schools – but you might have a class YouTube account which could be used for sharing presentations."
