A few weeks ago, a friend of mine showed me a video she created online with Animoto. Animoto is a very easy to use tool to create high impact videos from still pictures. Essentially, Animoto does all the work. Once registered, you just need to upload your images through their online uploading tool and choose music. Animoto does the rest! You can choose music from their music library, or upload your own music to accompany your video. Generally, you can create as many 30 second videos as you like for free and 'full length' videos are $3.00 each. However, Animoto is FREE for educators. With an 'all access' pass, you can create as many full length videos as you like for FREE. You can then download the videos to your computer or post them online to a number of places (including a web page, blog, facebook, etc.
Check out Animoto and register for your free educator account and start creating impressive videos. You need to register through the educator link in order to receive the All Access Pass.
