Meet Jacqueline, from Spain, founder of Taller Telekids which is a media literacy initiative that she founded in 1996.
Let’s listen to Jacqueline’s thoughts
Let me start by introducing you to Taller Telekids. This is a workshop I started to teach media studies to children and adults.
My workshop gives my students the opportunity to create their scripts, record them with cameras, and learn about sound, lighting, and digital editing.
After the videos have been completed, both I and the students become critical observers in front of the screens. This is done for all classroom projects. This workshop is very impactful.
The tight spot
It is said that “nothing comes easily.” I have found this to be quite true in my own experience.
I loved facilitating workshops but I also had to face some challenges.
When it came to my workshop, the two biggest challenges were:
The pandemic meant that I didn’t get enough students to my course. To reach more students, I needed to get to a wider audience. The workshops were becoming more theoretical. Therefore, I wanted to ensure that classroom learning was just as fun as real-world projects.
My courses were driven by social media. You’ll find me posting content regularly on YouTube and Instagram.
To solve problem no. 1. I decided that Instagram Reels was the best way forward.
Reels videos were getting more organic reach than any other content on Instagram. It was something I wanted to try so I did.
After I began posting reels, I noticed an increase in visibility for my profile. However, it did not give me the boost that I needed.
I’ve worked on many videos over the years. But Animation is my favorite. To overcome both my challenges, I decided to make Animation videos.
The pursuit of the right tool
Although there were many tools such as Adobe Animate or After Effects on the market, I had to spend a lot of time creating Animations.
Adobe tools weren’t the best solution for me as I needed to keep my Instagram feed updated every day.
Two criteria were required to meet my requirements:
I wanted to create animations of high quality in less than 30 minutes. It also had to be affordable.
It seems impossible that a tool such as this exists.
It was the same thing I thought until I found Animaker via Google. Its user interface was immediately captivating and I began exploring the app.
It was easy to use the features and I loved how many different templates and designs they had, even though it was a free download.

Do you believe in a eureka moment? My eureka moment was when Animaker came to my rescue.
Animaker was the right choice for me because it allows you to create many characters and has a lot of attractive actions and movements.
We can also add our voices to the animated characters in the video. This was important to me because I wanted to use Animaker videos in my Instagram reels, and to create explanation videos using Animaker to help teach my lessons.
My Graph: The Upward Trajectory
You might be wondering what the results were after I began using Animaker.
After I began posting animated reels made with Animaker, I noticed a 100% increase of organic reach. Views have increased from hundreds to thousands.
This helped me increase traffic to my online course. This resulted in two times more sign-ups that I had previously.
Although I only started Animaker a few months ago, I am extremely pleased with the results I have already seen.
I was able to offer my students a wonderful learning experience by using Animaker. My students have been very supportive and encouraging about my course.
My results have been so impressive that I started an online course to teach my students “How to Use Animaker.”
In addition to the course, I also began publishing videos similar to this one on YouTube.
Let’s sum it all. Animaker is the one tool that solves so many problems for small and medium-sized businesses such as mine. Have you had a similar experience using Animaker? Please share your Animaker experience in the comments section.
