Animate is used to design vector graphics and animation for television series, online animation, websites, web applications, rich web applications, game development, commercials, and other interactive projects. The program also offers support for raster graphics, rich text, audio video embedding, and ActionScript 3.0 scripting.
Adobe Tutorials Online:
These tutorials are available "in the application" If you select the tutorials from this category it will open a tutorial and file you can work with directly in the application.
The Article and Video Tutorials provide a written explanation, videos, and also resource files you can use to follow along. These are a little longer than the Hands On tutorials but they are really well designed.
The Adobe Animate User Guide is an excellent resource. It's sort of like an instruction manual for everything you really wished you knew more about Adobe Animate.
