Clipchamp

Principal function(s): Audio recordingSlide presenting

Clipchamp is a video-editing software, part of Windows 11, that can be used through a browser or as an application. The free version includes basic edition tools for creating videos, trimming and splitting and finally downloading them. Transitions and animated texts can be included, and users are also able to record their screen and webcam and convert text to speech. Evaluation: Clipchamp is a useful platform for creating and editing videos. The free version is somewhat limited, but it does enable professional-looking videos to be assembled, in up to 1080p, although sometimes with a watermark. Overall, it should suffice to cover the needs of educators and learners. Clipchamp could be an interesting tool for learners to boost their creativity and have a medium to express themselves and their interests. They could be asked to create a video related to a school topic, for example, thus obliging them to do some research, and then present the results as a Clipchamp video. Watching and listening to their own videos could help improve their speaking and pronunciation skills.
