Turning a blog post into a video with Lumen5

Lumen5 is an amazing user-friendly app that turns a blog post or an article into a video! All you have to do is copy paste the link to the blog post and Lumen5's Artificial Intelligence will automatically create a storyboard for the video. If you don't like how "Natural Processing Algorithms" have shaped up your story, you can easily edit it any way you want.
The next step that AI performs is choosing the appropriate audiovisuals from a huge library of copyright free videos, photos and audio clips.  If you're not happy with AI's choices, no problem, because you can upload your own visuals. Before you publish the video you can add your logo and your watermark if you want to. The video can be published directly on Facebook or it can be downloaded as an mp4. file. Here's my first video that I created very quickly, it took me about half an hour to turn one of my blog posts into a video in the way I liked it.


Lumen5 offers a free plan with an unlimited number of videos, somewhat lower video resolution and a subtle Lumen5 logo that appears in the video.

I learned about Lumen5 in this excellent post on Nik's Quickshout: 10 Free Apps to Enhance your Students' Learning.
