Creating Media for Learning: page 83
"Animation has captured our imagination since the first flipbooks in the 19th century and the appearance of Mickey Mouse in 1928’s “Steamboat Willy.” It has traditionally been an extremely expensive and time-consuming process that required the design and assembly of thousands of individual images. Today, developments in computer software and mobile devices have made the production of animations far simpler and more accessible to nonprofessionals. Many educators view animation as a valuable tool for learning."
