Site Update: Unveiling the New GoAnimate For Schools

We’re thrilled to announce that our site revamp is complete! We made a lot of great changes to your GoAnimate for Schools subscription, so we want to walk you through everything so you get a look at all the new features.

See all the updates below and watch our getting started video. As always, feel free to let us know if you have any questions over email (, tweet at us, or write us a message on Facebook.

New Homepage

We’ve redesigned our homepage and added some great, new resources. Scroll down the page to see how GoAnimate for Schools works, learn why you should be using animated video in your classroom, and get insights into creative ways to use animated video in your classroom.

Check it out here.

Name Changes

We noticed that many users were using different terms for the same things, so with this update we are simplifying and clarifying the terminology we’ll use on site. Here’s the roundup:

Templates: Previously known as Quick Video Makers, our Templates are a great resource for when you only have a few minutes. You can make a video in fewer than 2 minutes.

Themes: Previously known as Full Video Makers, our Themes showcase our various animated visual styles. Select the theme that best tells your story.

Video Maker: Prior to our site revamp, the Video Maker had been referred to as the Full Video Maker Studio, or sometimes just The Studio. You can get to the Video Maker by clicking on any Theme of your choice.

Updates to Features

New Themes: You make such great videos with our current themes that we thought we would add a few more for your animating needs. Introducing Stick Figure It Out, Good On Paper, and the Business Friendly Template.

Teacher-Only Subscriptions: We understand that some teachers want to create videos without having their students create them too. GoAnimate for Schools now offers a teacher-only subscription. The best part is, if you start with this subscription and decide to add students later — it’s super easy to adjust your account.

We hope you like the new site!

Happy animating!
