PC Movie Maker Tutorial

For those of you wanting to make your 3 minute self-evaluation video on a PC, here is a Movie Maker Tutorial made by your peers Kristen and Blake. Remember to start on it early so you have no major last-minute glitches formatting or uploading it. YOu may use thumbdrives, Youtube, or other storage methods that are accessible by our room computer, so practice beforehand on that computer if possible.
Make sure you have fun and bring refreshments that day!
