10 Creative Uses for Tellagami

Tellagami is an iOS/Android app that lets you create a quick animated message called a Gami. You create an avatar, select a background (including your own pictures), and then record your own voice message or write a 450 character text message and select a voice style. It’s too much fun! I see a lot of potential for it as an ed tech tool.

Here are 10 creative ways to use Tellagami in the library:

  1. Upload pictures of your library to Tellagami and use them as backgrounds to animate a virtual tour that you can add to your web site.

  2. Animate book reviews that you can share through your library’s social media sites.

  3. Use a Gami in place of a text description to introduce a Libguide. In order to embed a Gami in your Libguide, you will need to screencast it first and then upload it to YouTube (Screencast O-Matic Pro works great for this purpose).

  4. Use Gamis to introduce your library staff in the ‘about us’ section of your library web site.

  5. Use a Gami to introduce yourself or to provide instructions for activities if you are embedded in an online course.

  6. Mash up a Gami with a tool like Mozilla’s Popcorn Maker.

  7. String multiple Gamis together to create a video lesson using a tool like Metta (you can also embed polls in Metta).

  8. Create a Gami as an unusual email signature.

  9. Use Gamis as navigational guides throughout your web site.

  10. Have students create Gamis as testimonials for the library (share them on your web site or through social media), or for such things as book reviews, digital storytelling projects, etc…
