This is a guest post from Warren Sparrow from Rondesbosch Boys Preparatory School in Cape Town – from his blog

1) Emaze

This application is really cool. Emaze can be found at http://www.emaze.com/

  • It allows you to make online presentations.
  • You can select a theme and then add text, images and videos.
  • It is really easy to use!!

This is the video demonstrating how to use Emaze

2) Animoto

Animoto is a FREE web tool that allows users to create 30 second videos that incorporate:

  • images
  • short video clips
  • text
  • music

Animotot can be found at http://animoto.com/. Users may provide all content or utilize images, videos, and music provided on the website. Completed videos may be viewed online or downloaded and viewed offline. 

Animoto for Education

Teachers may apply for a Free PLUS account that allows users to create videos up to 20 minutes in length. With an education account, teachers can monitor student work and limit access to the videos produced. After registering, teachers receive a code to share with up to 50 students. It took me about 30 minutes.The access code will expire after 6 months and you will need to request a new code within 30 days of expiration. The PLUS account is usually $60 per year for each non-education user. BRILLIANT!!!!!
