This week’s WWW (Weekly Wednesday Website) is…
Animoto is a free video creation web tool that allows you to upload your digital pictures and/or video, add music, and mix a presentation by simply clicking a button. Use their music, or upload your own (copyright compliant) songs. No video editing skills needed! Their motto “fast, free, and shockingly easy” says it all!
Sign up for a free account and begin creating your own 30-second videos to embed or link to, or become a member for $30 per year and create longer videos which can be downloaded as well as linked and embedded. You can also apply for a free Education Account and receive some of the paid features for free. (It may take several weeks for your application to be approved.)
(**Note: Our school has a subscription to the royalty-free music website SoundzAbound which provides access to hundreds of songs for teacher and student projects. This music can not only be used in classroom presentations but can also be posted to the Internet without violating copyright law. )
