Free educational account (allows unlimited number of slideshows that are not restricted in length; can sign up students to do the same)

Make a video without a video camera.  Choose the photos, videos and text, add music and wait a few minutes while your video is finalized.  This is a great "we're so past powerpoint" way to have students present their work.

An example!
