Video Holiday Greetings Courtesy of Animoto

I am a big fan of Animoto because it allows students to make great looking videos very quickly. Another reason that I am an Animoto supporter is because they are very generous to teachers by allowing teachers and students to create education accounts which grants access to the premium services for free.

Last month Animoto added the option for users to insert text into their videos, prior to this pictures were the only option. Today, Animoto announced another use for their free service, video holiday greeting cards. Click here for a sample video holiday greeting.

Applications for Education
Animoto holiday greetings will allow students to create and share with family, friends, or the world how they are celebrating the holiday season. Students could make videos with images of representing the holidays that they celebrate and how how they celebrate those holidays.
