Lights, Camera, Action! It’s time to start creating videos for the Made in the Cloud Video Contest!
In collaboration with Rushton Hurley of Next Vista for Learning I am happy to announce the first Made in the Cloud Video Contest. What is it you ask? It’s a video contest for teachers and students to help others learn through videos. It’s also an opportunity to learn about all of the wonderful web-based video and audio production tools available for free.
The purpose of the contest is to have teachers and students create short (under 90 seconds) videos in which they share something that will help another person learn something new. In the past entrants have done things like sharing their best “tricks” for remembering mathematics equations.
The other purpose of the contest is to get teachers and students to try out web-based video production tools. We’ve chosen to highlight JayCut, but you are free to use any other web-based tools you like, just let us know what you use. To learn how to use JayCut and a bunch of other free web-based audio and video, please check out my free ebook Making Videos on the Web – A Guide for Teachers.
