Last fall I wrote about a neat video creation tool called Shwup. Shwup is similar in nature to Animoto and Stupeflix. Shwup has been renamed as Muvee Cloud. It still has all of the same excellent collaboration tools that it did before. You can create private group photo albums and use those photos to create videos. As the creator of a video you can choose to make your videos private or you can choose to share them on the web.
Muvee Cloud could be a good way to share photos from your class with your students’ parents. If you take your class on a field trip and have parents take pictures while they chaperon they could contribute to a private album you’ve created on Muvee Cloud.
