GIF It Up for Open Education Week

Make your own Animated GIF that suggests the joy of Open Education Week!

Do we have to provide a definition of what an animated GIF is?

Let’s collect/create animated GIFs that generate excitement about Open Education Week. Yes, one can just find and repost ones that exist. That’s so… ordinary…

But it’s more rewarding to make a new one. The Giphy Create tool allows you to easily create one from selecting a few seconds from an existing YouTube video OR you can use an existing GIF and add a new caption.

For a guide to making an animated GIF from a video clip or to re-mix an existing GIF, here is one I made for a media class - the examples are more related to the course theme, but the method works for any video clip.
