    Telligami is a fun, simple iPad application that allows you to record and create a short animated talking cartoon with one character. The limit is 60 seconds of recorded audio or 450 characters of text so students and/or faculty could present content, introductions, announcements in an interesting way using Telligami. The Telligami link can be e-mailed or users can save it to their Photo Album and then upload it as an attached MOV file. The only downside to this application is that a longer amount of time would add to the enjoyment!

    What I like about Tellagami is how easy it is for you to create a personal experience by using your own photos and voice with the animated character. You can take pictures from around your environment and incorporate them into the background. The final product can be shared in multiple ways and there is no need to create an account.

  3. Beth Alsen - Mesa Community College says:

    Do you want to navigate learning providing directions to your learners? Then, Tellagami is a great App. However, there are not as many features as GoAnimate! or Powtoons, there are enough to create a fun and engaging introduction or explanation of learning about content. As Helice our Tech Guide noted above, it does have the additive feature of using any background you would like. And, the facial expressions add emotions to the characters in a creative way. So, get everyone on the bus and try this out!
