to the site, drag and drop them into the editor, and add transitions, graphics, text boxes, music, and much more.
Wevideo is similar to Windows Moviemaker, however, wevideo is cloud based and allows you to access your videos from any computer. Wevideo also gives you the ability to work collaboratively on a video. Wevideo has many more graphics and effects that you can add to your video to make it more entertaining. Wevideo provides you with a movie editor where you can upload your pictures
Finished videos can be exported to YouTube or any other media outlet (twitter, etc.) and published. Students in Middletown can login directly with their Google accounts or a free account can be created. In order to collaborate, you must invite someone to work on the project. This can be found in the dashboard section. In order for you to view student created videos, the student must invite you to collaborate on the project or the student must export it to Youtube, publish it, and share the link with you.
Wevideo can be accessed directly from www.wevideo.com or it can be accessed through Youtube. If you go to www.youtube.com/create, there is an option to create a video using wevideo. Using youtube.com/create, you are given the same options as wevideo.com, however, you can publish your video directly to Youtube from this site (the publish option is in the top right hand corner). Videos that have been exported from Wevideo, but have not yet been published, will appear on your dashboard and you will have the option to publish them to Youtube. The students, as well as teachers, have their own Youtube channels through their Google accounts. You can access this channel two ways: 1. from the Google homepage, go to more, then even more, and click on Youtube and 2. if you are signed into Google, you can go to youtube.com/create and you are automatically logged in.
