Welcome back Ron!
Friday we had the opportunity to explore using iMovie on the Mac. Today we will be exploring Windows Live Movie Maker for the PC (click on the link for the PDF file). Once class starts, be prepared to share a PC with someone else.
Just a reminder: Wednesday, October 12 is a workday and attendance is optional. I will be in the lab to help you with your video. Please plan to attend if you need support on your project or access to the lab. If you have missed 3 days of class, this will count as a “make-up” day since attendance is optional. You are also welcome to turn your project in earlier. (See directions for posting on your site below).
Your digital story is due at the beginning of class on Monday, October 17. Please review earlier blog posts for specific requirements for the project.
Directions for Submitting Work
Here are the directions for submitting your work. Please make sure NOT to wait until the last minute!!
- Create a Creativity and Innovation page
- On that page, write a short description of your story
- Follow these exporting directions:
Here’s how to add your video to your Creativity and Innovation page (it depends on what tool you chose):
Photostory: You’ll follow these directions to save for “playback on your computer” and then you’ll add the resulting .wmv file as an attachment at the bottom of your digital storytelling page.
iMovie: Follow these directions to upload your movie to YouTube. Then, copy the url for your movie in YouTube, open your digital storytelling page, select “Insert” from the dropdown menu, then select “YouTube video” and paste the YouTube url in the provided textbox. This will embed your movie directly on your digital storytelling page. (You don’t have to put it on YouTube – let me know if you want different directions).
MovieMaker: Watch this tutorial to export your movie. (You’ll want to watch the section of the tutorial that starts at about 1:30). Save the exported file and then attach it to the bottom of your digital storytelling page.
VoiceThread: Login and go to “MyVoice” to select your video. Click on the Menu at the top left of the screen and choose “Share.” Click the “Embed” button and then the “copy this” button that appears in the new window. This copies the url for your video to your computer’s clipboard. Link to this url on your digital storytelling page.
Storybird: Follow these directions for publishing your StoryBird. Click on “Share Story.” Copy the resulting url and past it as a link onto your digital storytelling page.
