Instructional Ideas

Tape yourself to create video lessons for your class. They can view them on YouTube at night and discuss the material in class the next day! Since you can add in photos and videos, you have some flexibility in what you create. 

Class members will love using Videolicious for projects and presentations. They can tape one another or themselves and add in music, photos, and filters for extra pizazz. Have your pupils show you their proficiency in any number of class subjects. Language and drama students might have particular success with this app.

Classroom Considerations

As it is, the app is set up to share via Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter. Make sure you set up restrictions in your settings if you don't want class members to access these outlets. 

You have to create a free account to share HD videos, store up to 20 videos, and add Videolicious to your desktop. You can still create videos and share them by e-mail and on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter, as long as they are not HD.

In order to fix or change part of your recording, you'll have to redo the whole thing. If you press Delete after previewing your work, it will send you back to the record screen, where you can try again. It does save your chosen photos and video clips. If you press Back from that screen, you can change those images as well.

Pros
  • Includes entertaining effects like music and filters
  • Blends photos and video clips together
Cons
  • Requires you to re-record the entire narration if you make a mistake
