Getting Started with Animoto for Education

You CAN NOT register first, and then request an Educator's Account with Animoto. In order to register for the Educator's Account which gives you and your students the ability to create FULL LENGTH video productions, PLEASE follow the directions below. PLEASE BE AWARE IT CAN TAKE AS LONG AS TWO WEEKS TO RECEIVE YOUR TEACHER CODE DUE TO HIGH DEMAND. As with everything else, you can avoid this being an issue if you PLAN AHEAD. Animoto is currently revamping their educational account system, so hopefully the amount of wait time will diminish.

YOU MUST APPLY FOR YOUR CLASSROOM CODE FIRST:

1. Go to http://animoto.com/education

2. TO APPLY FOR YOUR CLASSROOM CODE: Click on the APPLY NOW button, as shown in the image below. DO NOT CLICK ON SIGN UP. If you create your "free" account by clicking on "Sign Up" it will not be an Educator's Account and you will be limited to 30-second free videos.
