Try Magisto for Simple Video Editing

Last month I reviewed Magisto on Android 4 Schools. Magisto for Android makes it easy to quickly trim raw video clips, combine them into longer productions, and overlay them with sound tracks. Yesterday, I discovered through the Official Google Docs/Drive Blog that the web version of Magisto now integrates with Google Drive.

The web version of Magisto is just as easy to use as the mobile version (available for Android and iOS). To use Magisto on the web just upload your raw video clips, trim the to length, combine clips together (optional), add a soundtrack, and you're done. If you're a Google Drive user who has videos stored in your account, you can upload those videos directly into Magisto.

Applications for Education
Magisto isn't going to replace WeVideo or iMovie as my favorite video editor. That said, if you need a tool for quickly creating a video montage, Magisto might be it.
