Create character animations online

This is a great site (although I'm almost positive it can't be accessed from school) that you can use to help kids make their own character animations. I plan to use it during my Animation Unit. There are other good ones that are in the form of iPhone/iPad apps, but this one can be accessed from any computer. SketchStar Animation Creator. Speaking of Animation apps, I had so much fun making an animated version of an old tongue twister for my theater students with Animation Creator HD that I submitted it to a Film Festival--and got in! Biscuits was shown at the SoDak Animation Festival in October of 2011.
