Our new platform enables teachers to simply and cost-effectively add video creation assignments to any curriculum, making complex subjects easier to understand and more fun to learn.

Xtranormal™, the revolutionary online approach to movie making, is moving to the head of the class with its brand new platform: Xtranormal for Educators. Currently used by over 4 million people worldwide, the new education-focused Xtranormal platform offers the same ingenious “If You Can Type, You Can Make Movies” technology with easy-to-use administration tools designed specifically for teachers and students.

“Video is a highly engaging teaching aid, but until now, it has been prohibitively complicated and expensive to incorporate into a lesson plan,” says Graham Sharp, CEO, Xtranormal. “Our new platform enables teachers to simply and cost-effectively add video creation assignments to any curriculum, making complex subjects easier to understand and more fun to learn. I know from experience with my own kids that making short animated movies for school assignments is a great way to engage creative thinking and encourage them to have fun with the learning process.”
