Videocast on nuclear energy after Fukushima

In groups we either had to create podcasts or videocasts. My group members and I had to create a videocast via "Animoto" concerning the topic "Nuclear Energy after Fukushima". Animoto enables you to create an animated slideshow that can be enhanced by adding voice-overs or background music. Some group members were concerned with finding appropriate pictures, while the other group members researched information on the incident. Later the voice-over was recorded and edited. Finally, the pictures and the voice-over were uploaded to Animoto, but unfortunately we did not have enough time to synchronize the two layers. Below you will find the result of our group work.
