Making an animated Video Shouldn't Be a Drag. It Should Be Drag & Drop.

GoAnimate's mission is to enable schools, and teachers o make videos — quickly and easily.

Videos could and should be everywhere. Businesses use them to explain complex topics, train employees, or just show their soft side. Teachers and students use them to exercise higher-order learning skills, such as creativity and critical thinking, in the classroom. Individuals use them to make their friends laugh, better visualize their favorite song, or just say, “I miss you” to someone special.

What's the problem? Making a video is hard. People perceive it as one of those black-box processes they can't even wrap their head around. If they think it through (most mentally run screaming before even getting this far), they think it's going to take a long time, cost a lot, and be really, really hard.
