Today while I was reading a short article on the importance of videos in education, it dawned on me to compile a list of some of the best video creation tools to share with you here. I do have a separate section here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning where I have been featuring a plethora of video tools . But today's collection is somehow different not only because it contains the cream of the crop but also because these tools are all web based.
All of the web tools below do not require any software installation and you can work on them right from your browser. I am pretty sure you will find them very useful particularly when working on video projects with your students. Please have a look and share with us if we have missed any important title. Enjoy
