What is Adobe Spark Video?

It is an app and website where you can create brief videos by using images, text, music, and audio recordings. Adobe Spark Video may also provide you with an alternative to making a Google Slides presentation or iMovie video. It is very easy to use and it has a variety of templates that will provide you with many ideas for your class projects.


Why is this a great tool? 

The variety of templates available make this a great tool to creatively and professional demonstrate learning. They are easy to share via a link or download to your device and can be created and accessed on any device.

How do I use it?



Go to Adobe Spark or download the app from Self Service (iPad). Click Log In using Adobe ID or Education account. Use your Shakopee Schools email address and password to log in.


Now that you are in Adobe Spark Video, the first screen you should see are the many different video examples that you can use as inspiration. Either choose one of those templates or, if you want to create your own, press the big “Add” button on the bottom of the screen. These templates are very useful and can serve as a guide to creating your video project.


Features to use
The plus button in the middle of the screen is how you would add pictures, video, or text to that slide. The microphone is to record your voice over the slide. On the upper right corner, you will see different options for changing the layout of your slides. You can change how each slide looks by clicking on Theme. This option allows you to change the background color and style. The music option allows you to pick background music for your presentation. As you create, Adobe Spark automatically saves your project. By using the Share button, you can save your video to the camera roll, or copy the link and share it with your teacher. Be sure to check on how your teacher is asking you to submit the video.
