Last time, I shared a few ‘video’ tools that I have used. However, there are many video tools out there. You may also want to check out the following tools that others have used to create materials for their classrooms, as well as student productions. Please let me know what you think of them and feel free to share more!
This iOS, Android and Windows compatible app ($2.99) is an interactive white word and screencasting tool. Check out these short videos, which highlight the commonly used features. One example that I found, was that a student recorded how he was trying to balance a chemistry equation. (Using the 'Explain Everything' App in the classroom YouTube video).
Create animated videos. The basic features are free. They also have premium features for a cost. Consider using it as an alternative to PowerPoint.
A video sharing site with multiple levels of membership and yes, there’s a free one too! Vimeo is comparable to YouTube, but there are some differences. Do you have a preference? Let us know what you think.
This freeware converts videos to multiple formats and has editing features. There is a Windows and Mac version.
I invite you to share a tool and your creation with us (whether you think you're creative or not)!
Looking ahead…I’ll share a few tips and resources to search for videos created by others.
