Animoto Introduction Assignment
Create an account at http://animoto.com
Gather 5-12 digital photos of yourself, family, etc… (Use photos you’ve taken yourself; if you do not have photos, you can search for some at http://search.creativecommons.org/)
Make a 30 second introduction video using Animoto (use their music, not your own. Do not break copyright!)
In your blog, introduce yourself and include why you are in the class (what you hope to learn), and something interesting about yourself (you actually write this portion). Then, embed your Animoto video (try to embed, if not, just post the URL/web address and make it a link). Finally, make sure you go check out your classmates introductions. Say “hi” to one another.
