This is a nice little tool (web-based, iOS, or Android) that allows you to upload images, add captions, select style, add music (upload your own or choose from their library). Depending on the chosen style, it creates an HTML-5 compliant video that plays right inside your browser (full screen if you wish).

Adding captions is an important part of this tool, but it falls short in that it allows only 80 characters. Users have very little control of the speed of the show- it automatically adjusts based on the length of the caption. However, as a workaround, students can either upload multiple images regarding the same topic and have a sequence of captions to explain the concept- or they could create a text slide in a slideshow maker (like Google Slides or PPT) then save as an image.

Overall, it’s a pretty great tool that makes a fabulous end product!

This is a simple tool to label images, diagrams, maps, etc. on the iPad. Users can import images or take photos using the camera.
