Animoto for education - full features for free
"This week I have been mostly..." making Animoto videos with Indian teachers, like the dodgy example above. (The quote is rather obscure for anyone but my British readers; sorry). It's zero level skill entry, great for getting something out there in a few minutes, with the potential to download the content, change the film and add actual original footage... it's full of potential for every age and stage. And it was edu.blogs.com that brought you it first.
Having been asked so many times this week how one gets full-length videos, only to give the whithered reply: "you pay", I've been cheered up by a comment from Animoto's Rebecca tonight, that the app will now offer free codes to teachers and their students to have the full features of paid-for Animoto, in school and at home. Details on their educator site.
The timing couldn't be better, something on which to end on a high note tomorrow morning, after a superb week in the most frenetic, exciting, exhilarating city I've ever visited.
