At first glance, the 3.5 hrs of iMovie tutorials looks daunting. I'll admit that my first thought was, you've got to be kidding! When am I going to find time to watch this?? Well, those smart people at Lynda have all of that figured out. The tutorial is broken up into sections that go together, and within each section the video segments range from 1 minute to 4 minutes long. Lynda keeps track of the videos that you watch for you as long as you're logged into your account while viewing them. When you finish all of the tutorial, you get a certificate of completion!
The best thing I learned this time? How to swap the project window and the window that holds the clips. Now I have so much room to work on my project! Priceless!
As you can see, I also learned how to close all of those extra boxes and whatnot. It's so much easier to figure out what you want to keep and what you want to cut when you have room to spread it all out.
I can't wait for my next installment of the Lynda.com iMovie tutorial. I'm working on a video of my students using Popplet to map vocabulary terms.
Stay tuned! More Apples to come...
