Yearly Video Diary with Clips

Hi All!

Last year I used 1SE to make a yearlong video diary for my students. 1SE takes a clip video each day and then glues them together.

This year I want to use Clips to make the video blog instead of 1SE, however I see the management of a video clip each week to be a bit cumbersome (they have limited tech skills.) I see myself as needing to have them export it from Clips to Photos, and then importing from Photos to iMovie to put them together.

Any ideas on how to simplify the process so they can make lots of short clips over time, but then have one video at the end of the year?

Thank you!

Can they all take a photo or small clip and airdrop it to you? Then you simply import them into Clips?

Are students each assigned a personal device? If so, they can just add a clip to their Clips project every day or week that they're capturing them.

If they're using shared devices, you could have them create individual albums in Photos. Then, as part of a classroom routine, students can film their short moment every day or week, file it in their personal album, and then have a bank of videos to use and edit later in Clips.

Thanks! With a bit of trial and error I found that Clips does everything I wanted and a little bit more.
