Create an Interactive Video Summary of the School Year

As the end of the school year approaches you might find yourself looking for a way to create an audio slideshow of highlights of the school year. YouTube's photo slideshow tool, Stupeflix, and Animoto all offer easy ways to create audio slideshow videos. Wideo does that too and also allows you to add interactive elements to your video. On Wideo you can insert interactive buttons into each frame of your video. The buttons can be hyperlinked to any webpage that you like. When people are watching your video they can click the buttons to be taken to the webpage you want them to land on. My video embedded below shows you how to create interactive videos on Wideo.

Applications for Education
With Wideo you could create a video to showcase highlights of the school year that include links to examples of students' work, links to information about places visited on a school field trip, or a link from a closing slide to information about summer learning programs for students.
