This blog is designed as a resource for CURR 501, Media Literacy, Popular Culture and Education at Rhode Island College, summer 2015. The course is driven by the essential question: How is new media and digital culture produced and consumed in ways that help us understand ourselves and each other in the context of the current educational landscape?

This program allows you to make a short video that includes slides with text, photos, and videos with background music of your choice.  

It provides you with a list of tools that you can utilize or you can download your own 

if your school had a budget for technology, you should take advantage.  

The cost for the year is about $ 60.00.  If you can share the cost with your colleagues, it will probably only cost you 10!   


I am new to all this technology and I was able to make a short video.  I still have to play around with the video so I can include my own photos and music.  I have to figure this out, but it was not too difficult.  
A help tool should be added to figure out how to insert videos or pictures.  
Would have been helpful.  
I'd give it a 4/5 since our world is surrounded by numbers!
