Excellent course. Great intro to Explaindio. A little basic, however I understand how hard it must have been for the instructor to make the course challenging yet easy enough for beginners. I'm a fan and eagerly await Part 2 or this course. Thanks. :-) Quincy Pratt

Very useful course. I've watched all the lectures and took some extensive notes. The instructor knows the subject to the fullest. The course came just in time. I will immediately use what I've learned to create videos for my sites. Thank you, Mrs. Anneke Camstra. Looking forward to watching your next course about Explaindio. -- George from Greece

Explaindio is an awesome software, but unfortunately is not too user friendly the first time around. I really enjoyed this course, easy to learn, fast, author is easy going. Just awesome. Thank You Anneke!! =) Homero Castano

Teaching Entrepreneurs Animation: The Easy Way To Use Video

If you need short videos.

If  you don't want to be in front of the camera. 

But you still need that , fast, easy cheap and  professional video, then I have a solution:

Let me teach  you step by step the easiest way by using animation softwares. The result is entertaining, to the point and very effective.

The tools that are available now simply did not exist 2-3 years ago. Only highly paid specialists could make these animations. But now you can too!

In my 30+ year career in the art world, I was surprised to find software that allow you to make videos messages, animations, eCards, promo's, explainer videos and much more.  Here’s the best news: they are very affordable.

But don't believe me, try it out for yourself in the new animation software like Explaindio, Powtoon, VideoScribe, Go Animate and a few more.

My courses will make it as easy as possible for you to start. You will enjoy the process because creating animations is really a lot of fun. My lessons are step-by-step over-the-shoulder videos; you cannot go wrong. And, I will answer questions that you post in the questions area.
