A potentially time saving and helpful feature of iMovie ’11 for educators is the “rating clips”, “favorites”, and “keywords” features. Using the advanced selection-sweeping clip makes the selection and rating process quick and easy. This feature allows the unusable and potential footage to be separated easily. Additionally, educators can tag segments with subject areas, unit names or student names as footage is imported. This will help save time, keep movie clips organized and make future image ciphering and viewing a more entertaining adventure. I envision that, after a bit of training, a student helper, the “videographer” of the day, would be charge of rating and tagging clips imported to a central hard drive.
