There’s a useful guide to Getting started with Windows Movie Maker

Some people have also shared tips on how to get some good effects with Movie Maker in various YouTube videos.

There are lots of websites where you can get stock videos from. Some of them you need to pay for, others you need to have an account with, and a few are free and easy! Here are some of the easiest ones I’ve found:

Your Computing pictures

Over the next week, you need to:

  1. Create a new post
  2. Use the new [Add Media] button then [Media Library] to add the photo of your program
  3. Add tags for “Computing” and your name (so if your name was Derek your tags would be Computing, Derek)
  4. Publish your post

Now comes the important bit!

  1. Find someone else’s post
  2. Leave them a 1-2-3 comment (Something good, something to improve, a question)
