11 Great Video Tools for Teachers

Over the last couple of years Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has been posting dozens and dozens of video web tools; but as you probably know, one of the common characteristics of almost all the web 2.0 tools is that they have a limited life span. Some of them live longer than others. That is why once a year and when our time permits, we do a massive hunt for those dead links in our blog, we try to omit those web tools that are no longer working and update our readers with the new releases. But this is a really hard work and takes a lot of time so if ever you are reading one of our oldest pages here and come across a link that does not work, please let us know .

As we were going through the video tools we have previously posted , we found some tools are no longer working such as Masher, which is really a good service and just last month we  featured it in one of our posts but today when you try it all you get is an error page , We don't know if it is just down for some time or it is gone forever. However, we have curated for you a list of some great video tools that will allow you to : create videos, edit them, add subtitles to videos, share them, and many more. Have a look at the list below and let us know what you think of it.



1- Animoto





Animoto is a great website. It allows users to create stunning videos using a simple process and without the need for advanced  video editing knowledge. It also has app for both Android and iOS.



2-Stupeflix




Stupeflix is another website you should consider when creating videos. It actually allows you to mix photos, videos and music to create awesome videos .It has a user friendly interface and is as simple as Animoto.

This is a great website for making animated movies. It is one of my favorite and all you need to do is type your words and Xtranormal turns them into animated clips.

  1. I wonder: do any of these online video editing/creating sites have limits as to how much video you can upload? Can they really compete with programs like iMovie and Final Cut? I'd love to know what you think! Thanks!
