Video Project Suggestions

As I announced last month, Next Vista for Learning and Free Technology for Teachers have partnered to create and host the Made in the Cloud Video Contest. The contest is still open to teachers and students. To help you get started I created a series of videos about making videos with JayCut. To further help you along here are some video topic ideas.
