How I Use It
I teach a video production class and imovie is very easy to use but does not give students all of the choices they are looking for in creating their video. Creating basic promo videos with still pictures are incredibly easy and fun for the students to create. It is difficult if you want to use a more advanced techniques in your video and should use a program with great depth like FCX or Avid.
Perfect for middle school students or a beginning level introductory class. imovie takes the decision out of the hands of the students to make the project easy to complete and also forces many projects to be very similar. I did enjoy the very little setup time that was needed and the resources available online for students to help them expand their knowledge of the app.
