This week in ds106 I am asking my students to do a 5 minute overview of a technique or trick they learned in video editing by showing one of their video projects. I’m getting a lot out of it myself as the students teach and give each other feedback in class.

Tonight’s demos included:

What I learned is I want to try my hand at After Effects (a ha, I actually have a full copy on my old laptop). A lot of students are making great progress with Movie Maker; Keelin found a link to the older 2.6 version that has more features than the current ones. Hannah used and shared a free Windows video editor that looks like it had a lot of good built in effects- check out Videopad. Quite a few students took advantage of the incompetech site for old style silent era music as well as the Internet Archive’s 78RPM collection.

If this kind of stuff has value, please support me by tossing a one time PayPal kibble or monthly on Patreon
