Here at the Innovations Lab, we have been impressed with Animoto for a long time. It is a web application that lets you take images and videos and easily create “rock video”-type of movies. And I still think it is pretty darn cool! But I decided to take Stupeflix out for a spin for a webinar I was teaching on “Images and Sounds” in teaching. Here is what I created during the session:
Some points to consider:
- Free account allows for as many 1 minute videos as you want. Free Animoto accounts can make 30 second movies.
- I think it allows longer video clips than Animoto. (But I need to test that out.)
- You can’t download videos with the free account.
Well, I like it enough that I am trying a paid account for a month. I am hoping that Stupeflix will be better for the continuity needed for digital storytelling!
I will test it out and report my finding in the next few weeks!
