Animations are invaluable when it comes to communicating the complex. The complexity of subjects may arise due to the involvement of mathematics or the need to use one’s imagination. They also seem ideally suited to the teaching of processes and procedures. They help us show and generate interest in something that may not be naturally engaging, so it can be fun and informative at the same time.

An animation can be character-based, text-based or a combination. The style can vary from semi-realistic to completely unique and can be developed in 2D or 3D depending on the needs of the educational challenge.
