Windows MovieMaker12

Windows Movie Maker (for students who use a Dell computer, grades 6 - 8) is a great tool for students to easily edit their movies.  There are many video editing extensions and apps available, but many times they only allow 2 to 3 minutes of video or they end up costing after a certain amount of videos have been created.
Students can download Movie Maker from LANDESK.

Select the window icon in the bottom left of your computer. Click LANDESK Management > LANDESK Workspaces. (as shown in image below)

If Launchpad appears, click the 3 lines in the upper left.
You should now see Self Service > Select Software Catalog.
Search or scroll for Movie Maker > Click Install. MovieMaker should begin installing to your computer.
Once installed, search or select All Apps to find Movie Maker.  










Using Movie Maker
The one drawback to MovieMaker is that you must Save your Project!  Students will need to Click File > Save Project.  

The menu bar allows for quick editing of video.
Add videos, photos and music from Home menu bar.
Add transitions using the Animations menu.
Change the look of your video using Visual Effects.
Emphasize narration, video or music in video using Project Menu.
Play video Full screen; view Waveforms (audio) using View Menu.
Trim Video and adjust the speed of clips using the Edit Menu. 
Videos can be saved to students computer (from Home Menu) and then uploaded to Google Drive.  (YouTube requires a Microsoft account.  Students will need to save to their computer, then upload to YouTube or Google Drive.)  I would choose "Recommended for this project".
