This tool was developed within the framework of a cooperation agreement between the European Centre for Modern Languages and the European Commission


Principal function(s): Image and video editing

Free downloadable Windows software for creating/editing videos or slideshows with videos, images, and audio clips. Evaluation: An easy way to create professional-looking slideshows or videos for users of Windows. It is a practical tool for creating presentations, storytelling, and other similar activities. Available in 64 languages. As with all video editing tools, it takes some time to master all the functions that allow good video production, but once that is learnt, video editing becomes much faster and handier. It requires installation. A possible activity would be asking students to create a video about a topic of their interest and thus get them to improve their speaking skills.

Cost: Free without registration
