Cool Tool: Vyond

Monday, July 1, 2019

Learners love videos. Watching content tends to be more engaging than listening to it, and it also helps them visualize whatever is being taught. Vyond is a video platform that instructional designers can use to enhance the learning experience.

Formerly known as GoAnimate, Vyond is an online video creation tool originally designed for marketers for animated promotional and explainer videos. However, its user base has expanded beyond marketers, who often take the lead in adopting new technology—certainly relative to L&D professionals.


The tool's drag-and-drop functionality and customizable templates make creating video content—from MP4s to GIFs—quite simple. It even hosts character lip-sync and a library of royalty-free music. You can host your videos wherever you wish or import them into other platforms. Vyond is compatible with the top learning management systems, making it easy to incorporate video into your existing content and significantly improve learning outcomes.

It has a free trial period and is significantly less expensive than traditional video production. Also available is a bevy of resources, training options, and an active customer community to help you along the way.
