Make your own cartoons online

Ever wanted to be a cartoonist, but can't draw? Welcome to my world. Anyway, I came across ToonDoo.com today and this website is letting me live my dream (free of charge!). I can now easily make cartoons by simply dragging and dropping backgrounds, characters, and props, etc. Try it. You'll like it. Here's a sample 3 panel cartoon that I made - it took me about 10 mins. Not bad for a 1st time.

For Mac users - don't forget about Comic Life... slightly different, but great for job aids.

Kia ora Eric

I think comics are great. Toondoo looks terrific. I have recently been alerted to some issues by Rupa Rajagopalan associated with the use of ToonDoo, that perhaps could be well worth taking note of.

I work for a large distance education centre. At TCS we are always aware of the vagaries of copyright issues etc. For this reason I am sensitive to such matters. Others may not be.

Catchya later

Great Comment Ken. A detailed read of the ToonDoo Terms of Use (http://www.toondoo.com/termsofuse.jsp) does clearly show the material can be used for personal use and some ambiguity exists on how it can be legally used in elearning settings. Rupa is wise. When in doubt, your Toon should include "the toondoo watermark, toon title and author name" and also be sure to provide a link back to the ToonDoo website.

Thank you for highlighting this important consideration Ken.
