- As an extension project to a research assignment, teachers can require students to create a movie using this website about their topic. Teachers can require a certain amount of images, slides, texts, and effects to be included in the movie. When finished, students can download their movie and then upload it to a class website.
- When studying a topic, teachers can assign students to make a documentary about the topic using this website. Students can be required to conduct research about the topic, so their movie includes facts and opinions about the topic. To conclude their movie, students can decide upon and explain the legacy of their topic. When finished, students can share their documentary with classmates in small groups.
- When learning a new word, students can create a video with this website that defines the word, shows images of when the word would be used, offers antonyms and synonyms for the word, and provides contextual examples of the word in a sentence. Important to this movie is that students record voiceovers of them using the word. When finished, students can post their movie to a class website. If teachers require students to create this type of movie each time new words are assigned, they will build a collection of videos over time.
- As an icebreaker activity, teachers can have students create a movie about themselves that includes information about their hobbies, sports, interests, friends, and families. When finished, students can post their video to a class website. Teachers can follow-up this activity by having students record one interesting fact they learned from each video.
- Teachers can assign two students a controversial topic. In response, each student can research the topic and take either a “for” or “against” stance about the topic. Students can then create a movie using this website to showcase their opinion about the topic. Classmates can then view both of the videos and vote for the video that makes the best case about the topic.
