Creaza Education contains a movie editor, audio editor, mind-mapping tool and cartoon creator in one online package, eliminating platform and storage issues for schools.
Sunderland, VT, March 17, 2011 - Tool Factory announced today that it is now offering Creaza Education, an online educational software suite that helps students to plan, create, publish, and share digital stories with ease. The four distinct programs contained within Creaza Education can be used independently or together to create powerful student projects.
With Creaza, since everything happens on the internet, students can continue their work at home, regardless of what type of computer they are using. Whether a learner is using a Windows, Mac, or Linux machine, they need only an internet connection, browser, and an updated flash player to use Creaza. In addition, projects created in Creaza can be stored online or downloaded to the computer, allowing schools the greatest storage flexibility possible, and because Creaza supports all movie formats, students can use everything from their school's digital camera to their cell phones to capture their content.
"We're excited to introduce Creaza Education to US schools because of its innovative approach," said Kendra Ericson, Tool Factory's Director of Educational Services. "The flexibility of the format will solve many issues faced by schools when working with digital media, including storage capacity and operating system compatibility, and because students can continue their work at home, it will allow learning to continue after the school day ends."
Creaza Education is comprised of 4 distinct programs that can be used independently or together:
- Mindomo - web-based mind mapping tool for visual learning, developing creativity, and problem solving.
- Cartoonist - web-based tool to create cartoons or digital stories that contains professional backgrounds, characters, props, images, and text.
- MovieEditor - web-based movie editor, complete with professional looking titles, transitions, effects, and more.
- AudioEditor - web-based audio editor for recording, mixing, and slicing audio.
Creaza Education also boasts built-in, educationally based, images, audio clips, videos, and themed artwork that learners can integrate with their own material to create professional looking projects.
