Tutorial: How to use iMovie on the iPad | jeadigitalmedia.org | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"Editing video on the go with the iPad and iMovie is pretty simple. Below I’ve grabbed three different free tutorials from Youtube that show you how to use the app. While the tutorials can give you a good of how to use the app, they are free so there are some limitations. If you are looking for really good, thorough tutorials on everything from iMovie to WordPress, I’d recommend subscribing to Lynda.com. These are a good starting point for you though if you’ve never seen iMovie on the iPad."
