Panopto: Outside Video Creation and Editing Resources
If your assignment requires more than simply speaking on video, or is a group video project, you will need to use some sort of video software to compile and edit the videos. While Grand Valley does not have an official video system it supports other than Panopto, this guide provides helpful free resources for students to use.
iMovie is a Mac only video editor that comes with Apple computers. iMovie is a user-friendly and incredibly robust tool for compiling multiple clips and images, creating smooth transitions, and editing them into one video.
Photos comes standard on Windows computers. It is not as robust as iMovie, but allows users to compile and trim multiple clips and images. It also provides a recording feature to add voiceovers to videos.
Adobe Spark is a web-based video editor. It will work for both Windows and Apple computers. Adobe Spark allows users to assemble and compile multiple videos or images, add voiceover, and add music to a video.
The Noun Project
The Noun Project provides simple minimalist visuals and icons for just about anything. These are great when creating informational clips in a video. The free versions only allow you to download in black and do require attribution to the creator of the work in the video.
