Animoto

As stated on their website:
Animoto is a web application that produces MTV-style videos using the images and music you choose. Produced in a widescreen format, Animoto videos have the visual energy of a music video and the emotional impact of a movie trailer. Best of all, no two videos are ever the same. Ever.

Sharing these videos is easy too. You can easily embed them onto your website and blog or onto social networking sites like MySpace and Facebook. You can also e-mail them to friends and download them to your computer.

The guys at Animoto used to produce shows for MTV, Comedy Central & ABC, study classical music in London, play in rock bands in Seattle and develop software in Japan. They developed a patent-pending, Cinematic Artificial Intelligence that thinks like an actual editor and director. This A.I. makes the same sophisticated editing techniques used in television and in film available to everyone.

Remember: Visual media is engaging for students to view and create.

Time to Make a Difference from Tod Baker on Vimeo.

It takes just minutes to create a video to bring your lessons to life.
Post/embed videos on your school website, blog or wiki or download them for in-class presentations.
