Here is a little video I created using GoAnimate. I used the Quick Video Maker, which gave a step-by-step tutorial. All I had to do was select a background, characters and then what I wanted them to say. I also thought it was cool that I could change their accent. I thought the British one was the best.

I had a lot more fun with this tool versus using Animoto. I can see a lot more uses for this in the class to make some of the lessons fun or even have the students create videos showing what they learned in a specific lesson.
The free version seems to give you a good start, but there is a paid version that gives you more options to choose from.
