Mozilla Releases Popcorn Maker
Mozilla has released Popcorn Maker 1.0, which allows journalists to create web-native video that includes real-time tweets, Google maps, images and more.
Popcorn Maker allows users to drag and drop video from YouTube or Vimeo or audio from SoundCloud and then add other other elements such as images, tweets and links to content on the web. For example, tweets that include a hashtag can be added and will be automatically updated with new tweets containing that hashtag after the video is published.
After watching the videos and poking around a bit, Popcorn Maker feels like Storify but with a video wrapper.
I’ve been exploring this since last week, and I think it has a TON of educational potential. My teacher followers should take a strong look at this tool. It’s not as intimidating as it looks, I promise :o)
