Magisto - Create Videos on Your iPad, Android Device, Chromebook, or Windows PC

Magisto is a mobile video creation app that I've written about a few times in the past when it was only available for iOS, Android, and Chromebooks. Last week Magisto launched a free Windows desktop app to round-out their offerings. Like the mobile apps, the Magisto Windows app helps you mix together pictures, music, and raw video clips to create short videos. Videos created on the mobile apps will be available through the Windows desktop app too (provided you sign into and sync your online account).

Applications for Education
Magisto is not a replacement for full-fledged video editing tools like WeVideo or iMovie. What Magisto excels at is providing an easy way to quickly create a video of highlights of a school event. Magisto might also be used to develop a short book trailer in video in which students share the highlights of a favorite book.
