A GIF is an animated image (different from a video) that can be anything from a short 10 second clip of a cute cat to a hand drawn animation. GIF stands for "Graphics Interchange Format"; think of a GIF like a flip book, except on the computer.
Why Use Storyboard That?
Storyboard That makes it easy to create your own GIFs. Ever wanted your storyboard to move? Or wanted to make a rocket ship take off and land on an alien bunny planet? Making a GIF of your storyboard opens so many possibilities. At the most basic level, all you have to do is download any storyboard in our GIF format! Of course, you can always make something incredibly fluid and awesome, which might take a little longer.
Can I Use GIFs for Education?
You betcha! GIFs are great for telling really short animated stories, and creating them is a great introduction to the process that many animators and storytellers use to create some of your favorite films. GIFs can also be used to summarize a full story or a single chapter. While dialogue might be hard to read on these fast moving images, students can use captions and action to show the events of a story. Here's some other cool things you can do across different subjects:
Math: Visually demonstrate basic math (like addition and subtraction)
Each version of Storyboard That has a different privacy and security model that is tailored for the expected usage.
All storyboards are public and can be viewed and copied by anyone. They will also appear in Google search results.
The author can choose to leave the storyboard public or mark it as Unlisted. Unlisted storyboards can be shared via a link, but otherwise will remain hidden.
All storyboards and images are private and secure. Teachers can view all of their students’ storyboards, but students can only view their own. No one else can view anything. Teachers may opt to lower the security if they want to allow sharing.
All storyboards are private and secure to the portal using enterprise-class file security hosted by Microsoft Azure. Within the portal, all users can view and copy all storyboards. In addition, any storyboard can be made “sharable”, where a private link to the storyboard can be shared externally.
