is a web application that automatically generates professionally produced videos, each a customized orchestration of your images and music.

These videos will be published so make sure that you have permission to publish the photos you are using and that you don't use copyrighted music.
Sign up for an Education Account with Animoto through this link. If you sign up through this link, you will have an all access pass for this school year. This will give you a chance to try it out. If you love it, you can sign up for your own education account and share this great tool with your students in the same way I am sharing with you. Please note that if you do not sign up through this link or you do not request an educators account, your videos will be limited to 30 seconds unless you pay an annual fee.

(If you do not have speakers on your computer, you may use headphones. The earbuds used for mp3 players work great. Borrow a pair if you don't have your own.)
