I’ve been monkeying around with iMovie on my iPad 2 and this is what I put together as a sort of “proof of concept” for a simple, down ‘n dirty little movie, mostly just to see if it would work. As I say in the movie, it does work, mostly, though iMovie for the iPad does have some significant and frustrating limitations. The camera on the iPad itself is also pretty limited; as far as I can tell, no zoom, for example.
Still, even with the limitations, I think there’s some potential here. It’d be interesting to put a couple of these into the hands of students to see what they do with them.
