Animoto is an application that produces videos from user-selected photos, video clips and music. It creates beautiful, professional-looking video slideshows with ease. In my experience with Animoto, I was impressed with the simplicity of the part of the user and the complexity of the program. Animoto took the petty and boring slideshow-making tasks out of commemorating September 11th. As an educator, I could use this tool in my instruction or students could use it to tell about their families, a research project, or a time in history (to name a few.) It is a very practical easy-to-use tool for anyone!
