UK schools will have the opportunity to get QuickTime Pro licenses for free.
Educators who buy the London Times Educational Supplement on Feb. 8 will get a free copy of QuickTime Pro (worth £25 inc VAT) for their school. In this edition, Apple will release “Picturing Literacy — Digital Resources,” a CD full of resources for ages 8-14 that will enable teachers and children to try their hand at making movie trailers, creating slide shows, animations, and more, according to David Baugh, Apple Distinguished Educator.
The CD will come with TES Online Magazine and will include Mac and Windows installers for QuickTime, clips from major movies such as Monsters Inc, ET, and War Game, as well as a range of classroom activities. Schools can upgrade free of charge to QuickTime Pro (one Mac or Windows license to QuickTime Pro per school).
With QuickTime Pro, students and educators can create Internet-ready audio and video, add special effects to their movies, make presentations and slide shows and export videos, sounds and pictures to more than a dozen standard file formats. Apple will also who them how to use QuickTime Pro to create and edit their own digital content using still images, video and audio.
The upgrade offer ends March 28. For more details go to the
