I am trying to keep a running tally of my makes:
Most of these you can remix yourself. I hope to add tutorials soon.

I love all the tools I can choose from when I sink into my deskchair and open up my laptop. The possibilities swirl in my mind as I edit videos and images. Yet for most of the world they will turn to the mobile web and mobile apps to spawn their creativity.
That got me thinking about the apps I use as a webmaker on Android. I wanted to share because more and more of learners I work with across the globe use Android as their only computing operating system. Actually in parts of the world over 91% of users have a phone powered by Android.
This is a great animation app for Android. I made a basic video for #clmooc.
I will work on tutorials for all of these later but you get a full range of movements and can quickly make a cartoon. My six year old son put one together in no time. You basically add frame by frame and can move your characters. You can also select multiple backgrounds.
This is a great app for making quick gifs. I used it to create a #CLMOOC gif. You basically draw with your finger and then can add frames and trace over what you drew. You then share your files as a gif.
Dogtrax is our resident Super artist. Super allows you to quickly do a "madlib" like prompt and add text your images. You can then share it out onto Twitter.

This image spoke to me as I customized my CLMOOC playscape. The infinity of time, the inquisitive gaze of learning, the metaphor of knowledge and wood for learning, and the masterful use of lines. All of it captures the values of connected learning.
I try to pay homage to those artists who openly license their work. I include attribution when possible. Furthermore I created a gallery on my blog to celebrate their work. Basically I favorite an image in Flickr and then embed a slideshow of favorites.
