The Time-Lapse tool on iPads is part of the basic photography app that comes pre-installed with all iPads and iPad iPad Camera Iconminis. Using this setting allows users to take a single “frame” or image every few seconds. The result is a fast-motion of whatever the camera lens was pointing at. Having a stable base for the iPad is essential.  After that, just point, start, and go!

Simple Uses?

- Record biology experiments with seedlings. - Create hand-drawn images accompanied with voice overlays for a pro-feeling video presentation. - Set up an impromptu security camera function that records every so many seconds.

Do I Plan To Use It?

My students are using it right now!

Commitment And Learning Curve

Low. The hard work comes when it is time to take the time-lapsed video and pull it into a video editor, create a voice-over, and export. The time-lapse itself is just a mater of getting a stable surface and just doing what you intend to do with it.
