Video Tools

video.jpgLights, Camera, (Inter)Action! Video brings a form of media to the classroom that instantly engages today’s learners. Video editing software can be expensive and hold a high learning curve. However, Web 2.0 video tools provide a wealth of easy-to-use editing and mixing tools that are free. Users can create videos that include text, graphics, music and video clips and they will become video production pros in no time. Many of these also offer hosting capabilities which can free up space on school servers.

Video tools also offer ways to connect with people all over the world that we may not have otherwise had the opportunity to meet. Through video conferencing software, we can bring the world to the classroom. Students can talk to an array of professionals or students from other areas to share or gather information.

In this part of the course you will be provided instruction on using Animoto to easily create professional-looking videos from photos, video clips and music. Students will be highly motivated to create video montages for their classroom projects. Additionally, this module provides more video tools for you to explore on your own.
