It’s our 3rd snow day in a row, and honestly, I’m ready to be back! Thanks to everyone who has been commenting while we’ve been out of school. Those who haven’t, you are welcome to catch yourselves up when we get back to school. We just need everyone to be caught up by the last day of the challenge (March 13th). We are going to take a break, though, for the weekend, so this will be the last post until Monday.


Using eMaze and Moovly to Create Exciting Presentations

If you’ve been looking for a more exciting way to present information, you will want to check out eMaze and Moovly. Both of these tools definitely go beyond the simple slide-based presentation, and they are sure to impress your classmates and teachers!




You can use eMaze to design exciting presentations for free. We like it because you can:

  • Use this tool for free.
  • Save and access your work from anywhere.
  • Choose from a variety of templates.
  • Easily add text, images, videos, and links.
  • Use the 3D option to enhance your presentation.

Check out these video tutorials to learn more and get started creating your own presentations!



You can use Moovly to create exciting animated videos for free. We like it because you can:

  • Use this tool for free.
  • Use Moovly’s library of animated images to tell a story.
  • Add your own text and animate it inside the video.
  • Add audio and images to your project.

Learn more about Moovly by checking out this introduction video; See examples of Moovly videos in the Moovly gallery; and get started with Moovly by viewing these Moovly Tips.


Check out these two great tools and let us know what you think. What types of presentations do you imagine you could use these tools for? If you’ve used them before, tell us how you used them or share an example.

Only students who provide their name and EVSC email will have their comments posted. Comments will be screened before going live on the blog – this might take a little time, be patient, they will appear.

We are looking for comments that add to the conversation and make us think. Feel free to ask the author of the post questions, add your own ideas and resources, and share your experiences related to the topic.

Challenge extended. We can’t wait to learn with you all!
