Last week I published 5 Ways to Create Social Videos. In that post I included a neat tool called Lumen5 that can be used to turn blog posts or any other written text that you own into a video.

In the video below you’ll see that Lumen5 takes the text of your article and breaks into small chunks to be displayed on slides. Lumen5 then automatically detects keywords in those chunks of text and adds corresponding images to the slides. Finally, music is added to the video. You can override any of the automatic selections that Lumen5 makes.

Applications for Education
Lumen5 could be useful for taking your written school announcements and having them quickly turned into a video to distribute on your school’s website and or social media accounts.

Lumen5 might also be a neat tool for students to use to see a visualization of the short stories or persuasive essays that they write.
