Animoto...videos quick and easy!
Like Charlene, I too discovered Animoto and was amazed how fast and easy it was to put together a good looking video. All housed online, you simply choose pics/vids from your computer and music from their site (LOTS of options) and the application creates a video using a selected template. I liked that they had plenty of music options (even a monthly "what's new" selection), which would satisfy K-12 students AND plenty of links to Creative Commons music sources for building school projects. Very student-friendly! There are benefits with a paid subscription, but like most, you could probably do without. You can sign your students up and let them make very cool presentations, very quickly! I threw this one together as a commercial for my after-school STEM Club...click here to check it out!
