"I was going to recommend Crazy Talk as well but I'm not sure they have a Mac client.  Also, unless they'ved updated it recently it doesn't handle multiple characters at once.  You could create two seperate ones and drop them…"

"Doug Valentine has great animations.  Go to the media section and search Hot Dog and you will see some of them.  The software isn't free but it isn't super expensive either."

Hello,I want to create  cartoon animations, using the faces of real people. I'd like to do this so that we can record the conversation and have the characters look like they are speaking. We have MACs. Is there any free software out there to accomplish this? We'd also like to add background images to the animation. Thanks.See More

Hi Sally,

I'm sending out messages to everyone I know right now, and this classroom20 network is no exception. (I've also sent this out on other Ning networks you may be a part of.) My name is Alyshia Olsen; I am a 20 year old college student from Olin College of Engineering. I am a part of a group of 6 Olin College students (we're in Needham,MA, and engineering students) who has taken a year off to work on an education related project. Since you are in the 'connecting content and technology' groun, I thought you might be interested! Our project is called AlightLearning, and this is our "short" project description:

Under the assumption that within ten years, the landscape of modern education will have fully integrated what we now define as new classroom media: video, online collaboration, open source curriculum and other web tools, we hope to pioneer a web software tool that acts as a platform for this new media, bringing the power of the web and its tools to students, teachers and parents in a secure, comfortable and innovative environment. Our goal is to have our free software at a pilot middle school by April 15th, 2009, continuing to develop and coordinate with our users to create a product that other schools want to pilot and use at their schools, while allowing individual teachers to implement this tool in their own classroom.

Our project, titled Alight Learning, is currently trying to win an idea competition on You can find us at . We would love your support in the form of a vote within the next couple days, but more importantly we'd love your feedback and comments. Our description on Ideablob is short, and even the one above hardly gets at many of the issues we would like to take a stab at solving, but at least it's a start.

Feel free to email me back, check out, anything you like!
