Animoto

Website: http://www.animoto.com
Difficulty: 2 out of 5
Cost: Free
Bottom Line: Teachers & Students can make quick, easy slideshows with music.
Not-so-great part: It can take a while for the website to create the final product, so it might not be feasible for everyone’s class.

Animoto allows you to create a quick, 30-second, slideshow complete with music. The real strength of Animoto is the rich library of media you can pull from. This includes music, pictures, and short video clips that have been licensed by the company.

Once you’ve created your Animoto, one tricky thing to find is how to share it! You click the “Video Toolbox” button in the lower-right, and then select how you want to share the slideshow.
