WeVideo
A free video editing and hosting site. Allows for social editing – a project can have content submitted by and be edited by multiple users.

Simply shoot videos and photos with your mobile phone or camera. Then upload them to your personal or shared WeVideo media library.


You can shape your story alone or together with others on the WeVideo canvas. You can add titles, effects, animation, music, narration and more to create your own video story.


We make it easy to share your video story in the WeVideo studio. Or publish your finished video to your favorite social-networking or video-sharing website, from basic to high-definition broadcast quality.



Here’s how it works:
With WeVideo, you simply upload your video clips, create your storylines, and edit them in the cloud. There’s no software to download. All video-story creation takes place in the Internet browser on your smartphone, tablet, or computer. And with WeVideo, you can collaborate on video stories by inviting others to upload their clips to your cloud-based video library. You can co-create a video with others or come up with your own separate versions. Once created, you can share your video in internet or high-definition broadcast quality on the WeVideo site or publish it to your favorite video-sharing, social-network, or other online site.

Apple is reportedly finishing an update to Logic Pro 9, its professional digital audio and music sequencing program, taking care not to rile existing users with significant changes.

The new update is reportedly called Logic Pro X to maintain the same branding as Apple’s recent Final Cut X. However, according to a report by Japanese blog Macotakara, Apple’s Logic team is making great efforts to stress that it will not shift toward a GarageBand interface, heading off fears that Logic Pro might lose its professional edge.

Lynda.com – + new features, – confusing interface

For a number of years, Lynda.com‘s online tutorials have been AU’s primary resource for software training. These excellent online training tutorials offer thousands of hours of instruction for AU faculty, students and staff. AU has a multi-year license to provide these, free of charge, to the AU community, whether they are on campus or off.

Recently Lynda.com changed their interface as they introduced their Lynda Campus product. The good new is that for the first time this lets users track which videos they have watched, bookmark videos to review later, and save certificates of completion when they finish tutorials.

Unfortunately, to do this Lynda.com makes it mandatory for users to create a personal login before they can go to the tutorials. Poor design makes it look like a user is signing up for an individual account with Lynda.com. Don’t worry, once you create a login, you will still have access through your AU affiliation and there will be no charge.

For information about accessing Lynda.com, you can search ALADIN for Title = Lynda.com.

If you use a lot of multimedia development software and you don’t know about JourneyEd you have been missing out.

JourneyEd offers HUGE discounts on common software to university students. The downside is that your university has to be enrolled in their program. But, for those of you who are AU students, not to worry. AU IS enrolled.

You can save up to 75% on Adobe applications, the Microsoft suite and a large variety of other software used in coursework.

The only catch to the site is that you’ll have to prove that you’re a student at a participating university which involves little more than entering your student ID.
