Buncee

Buncee is an award-winning educational tool where students and teachers create and collaborate on projects. Interestingly, it was first conceived as an e-card and e-greeting resource. However, it quickly became popular among educators. Buncee then launched platforms for education such as “eduBuncee” and “Buncee for Schools and Districts.”

Through a virtual “Buncee,” or canvas constituted of a single or multiple slides, you can integrate animation, audio, pictures, and “stickers.” Buncee has a wide library from which you can choose elements to customize your projects. You can create slides and print them. You can also generate QR codes enabling the reading of your slides on smartphones.
