How I Use It
I didn't like that it wasn't free and was less of a powerpoint-editing software as it was a video slideshow software.
My Take
I didn't like this product as a teaching tool. I understand that some classes use it as an introduction to video editing, but I didn't find that it worked as a presentation tool for classes not editing-focused. For an ELA teacher, I didn't understand how I could incorporate this software into my classroom.
