Well done everyone!

What a sterling job you all did today!

If you are looking for the video editing software on your home machine and can't find it, here are links to downloading it:

For PC users ("Windows Movie Maker"): (this version won't work on Vista, though)

For Mac users (iMovie): (if you the iLife suite, go to to update your software)

Throughout the course I aim at introducing you to free or nearly free software and services so that you can use them easily in your own classrooms. Video editing software is a cool tool to have at your finger-tips in any classroom!


  1. I did post something earlier. I hope this works.


  2. Hi Dr,
    I am looking for this video making software. Thank you for the information. I am not good at video making or film making; however, I am so surprised to get to know it. I am starting filming my dog Bella, who is the main character in my film project. The story will be about him. He has a lot funny stuff. Is this idea ok for my film project?

    Thank you.

  3. Tiffany--you idea sounds like it has lots of potential. You might want to spend some time on YouTube, looking at a whole bunch of narrative videos that use animals as the main protagonists. that ay ou can see how other people have developed their storylines etc. The thing to keep in mind is that your video has to tell an engaging story; it has to be worth viewers' time to watch. And so it needs to more than just a strong of clips of your dog being funny (although this is a great place to start mucking around with video editing as a trial run!).
