Animoto

1 Jul

Many of you may already know of Animoto. It is a web site designed to help you to create professional quality videos. I have played around with it several times, but always felt limited by the fact that I only had 30 seconds without having to pay a yearly fee.

While at the Google Teacher Academy, someone (I can’t remember who though) mentioned that they emailed the company and asked for it free for classroom use, and they were granted free access. I decided that it was worth a shot and was directed to the education program. They do offer the program free for those using it in the classroom with students!

I plan to both use this to convey information to students as well as to have them create short videos. In fact, one of the first projects I am planning will be a blogging assignment in which they watch a short animoto created video about types of technology.
