How I Use It
My middle school students created Animoto introduction videos about their summer vacations; and they created book trailers using Animoto. I really appreciated being able to set up student accounts without the students needing individual email accounts. Also, each account can be used by multiple students, so the fifty accounts can become endless with the right class structure in place. It does take some time to setup the accounts, however.
The students enjoy working with Animoto because it is easy to use, and it provides a quick sense of accomplishment with little effort. I'm using Animoto as an introduction to video editing. Animoto gives students a general overview of the elements needed to create good video content.
