Chattanooga State Student Example

This is a little long for a PSA but the concept is here. I'm hoping I can talk the students in the video into creating a 30 sec PSA version.

PSA by Vet Tech Students at Chattanooga State

This video was created using,educational account. The students are in the Vet Tech program at Chattanooga State. There clinical studies are done at various locations including the McKamey Animal Shelter in Chattanooga. All images were taken by students at the shelter.  This video is the result of an assignment where students create public service announcements or PSAs for their non-profit organization.


Example of Animoto

Students are guided through the animoto creation process during their class visit to the library. Here is a video created during the class by Lori Warren.
