In my free guide Making Videos on the Web I provided some getting started directions for using JayCut’s free online video editing platform. Last Saturday JayCut released version 2.1 of their free video editing platform. The new version of JayCut includes options for slow motion effects, direct recording from your webcam, a green screen, and color editing.
Back in May JayCut released a step by step guide for installing their video editor on your own server. With the release of version 2.1, JayCut updated the installation directions. You can find those updated directions here.
Applications for Education
Next week one of my US History classes will be creating short documentary videos about the causes of the American Revolution. My students will be using JayCut to create their videos. The new slow motion option should prove to be useful in synchronizing the display of images with the voice-over tracks made by my students.
