Animoto

Description

Animoto is a cloud-based tool for creating videos from photos and clips, with narration and animation added in. It's a simple, stylish way to put together a presentation for a class.

Account

Although we do not have access to their paid subscriptions, you will be able to create videos with a free account. To do so, travel to their website and click on "Sign Up" in the top right corner. From here, you'll be prompted to create an account. Make sure you select the free account by first selecting "Pricing" in the top right (rather than a trial of a pro account) or else it will add an obnoxious watermark atop your video. Please use your WCPSS email for your account. If you forget your username or email address, use the Email Search page. If you forget your email password, request it to be reset at the bottom of the Email Reset page

After this, you're all set. Check out the videos below to learn how to create your own Animoto videos.
