Animoto: Introducing Educational Content
Using Animoto or Animoto for Education (geared for K-12 use) and at least 12-15 images, create an online clip that you can use for introducing or summarizing specific educational content. Consider basic skills that need to be taught. There would be a sequence there. Or what about background information to anchor your introduction to a new unit of study? Or you documented a class project that led to a culminating activity with all the students.
You will need to create a free account at Animoto, upload your images, select music, and click the finalize button. Music is available at the site from artists who have given permission for their work to be used online in video. If you upload your own music, you must make sure you have followed copyright laws. (If you are asked you will need to provide documentation.)
Once your clip is generated, go to it and copy the URL at the top of the browser. Paste that URL into an email along with the title of your clip and send it to your instructor by the designated date. Your instructor will generate an online list of everyone's video clips for peer review work in an upcoming assignment.
