Pixton Comic Maker is one of our favourite tools for creating educational comics. We have already featured it in previous posts here in EdTech and mLearning. However, today we want to draw your attention to this handy feature that was released a few months ago. Paxton Comics add-in is an extension you can easily install on your PowerPoint and enables you to easily insert comic characters into your slides. There are over 40 thousand images to choose from and you don’t even need to have a Pixton account to start using the pre-set characters. Alternatively, you can connect your Pixton account if you have one and start creating your own customized characters to insert in your presentations. Watch the video below to learn more about Pixton Comics character add-in.
