Many of you may have realized, to your chagrin, that the Xtranormal site has been shut down as of July 31st. I searched for alternatives and found Digital Films . I have only been playing around with it for a few hours, but have not noticed a feature that allows characters to speak typed text like Xtranormal had. However, it is very similar to GoAnimate, and is FREE! I am toying with the idea of screen capturing my movie, and importing it into iMovie and adding my own narration. Another site is Wideo. I wish anyone that was planning to use Xtranormal this year luck. I will also be using Voki to present my class and lab rules.
Here is a sample movie I made with Digital Films: http://www.digitalfilms.com/mymovie.php?id=13269
