Animoto (the end of slideshows) provides a free Web 2.0 video service for educators. Videos can be made from images and music can be added as a sound track. Student videos can be as short as 30 seconds or longer. Students can make videos of their class projects and embed them in a class Wiki, blog, or in a multimedia presentation. The flexibility and ease of this service adds a new dimension for teachers and their students. Animoto is a great resource for anyone who wants to create vibrant animated videos with ppt. pics, and passion. Now educators can have free access for projects with students... I've signed up and will see how far I can go.
