As we learned, keep videos under 2 minutes, focus on the enduring question being answered through your lesson(s). Use iMovie. You don’t need to upload everything, just a few throughout the year. If you have questions about iMovie (or iPhoto) please contact a colleague or Carolyn Olson for assistance.
