  2. This is a great video! I wish I would have found this before I made my wedding slideshow and I am sure I wouldn’t have had to spend 6 hours perfecting my slideshow! This is also a great tool to use in the classroom to make all different types of videos. A lot of the time, I like students to pretend they’re the teacher and teach the class a lesson. This would be a perfect tool to use for this! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I actually teach at an all Mac school. We have all Apple laptops, desktops, ipads and ipods. I have included a imovie tutorial from Youtube as well. Hope that’s ok.

    I have had my students to great imovies for class projects and since we can’t post to Youtube in our district because it’s blocked, we post to Schooltube. It’s a great way to have them learn though their explorations.

  4. We have Windows Live Movie Maker on our computers at school. My junior high students have used that program to create vocabulary videos for the elementary teachers to explain vocabulary words for their students. Windows Live Movie Maker is a little updated from Windows Movie Maker. Here is a tutorial for Windows Live Movie Maker. (If I did it correctly.)

  5. I have never tried Movie Maker before. The tutorial was awesome. I will be returning to this blog to use Movie Maker! This will be so great to use to make slide shows of my little boys. My students also do readers theatre’s at school and I could use movie maker to document them so that they could see their hard work.

  6. This is a great resource on how to use Movie Maker. Having used this program with others available, I can say that it has the tendency to be quite cumbersome. However, this tutorial does a good job of simplifying it for personal and regular use. Diving deeper into it, there are a lot of cool features one can use to create videos!

  7. I took a digital media course a few years ago and loved it. It really opened my eyes on how simple and easy it is to create digital media for your classroom. I used Windows Movie Maker a few times and found that it was difficult to learn. I feel like if I would have seen these tutorials on some of the features and tips for Movie Maker it would have made life a lot easier. I ended up using an online program called WeVideo. WeVideo was very user friendly and there was a lot of effects that you could incorporate into your videos or slideshows.
