   WeVideo is a collaborative, cloud-based video editor/ creator.  Once you upload or record raw footage, you can edit the footage together with transitions, titles, backgrounds, and even add voiceovers.  The reasons I like WeVideo include:
1) It's free to signup and use!  Even better, you can sign-up by using your Google account.
2) You can invite friends to collaborate on the creation of your video.
3) You can link your Google Drive account or Dropbox account to upload/ download your videos.
4) You can have multiple projects working at once.

WeVideo's interface is very user friendly and I have found that my students can figure it out rather quickly- much easier than Windows Movie Maker (I've also used with students).  While it is not as powerful as iMovie, the simplicity of controls does not take away from a great-looking end product.

The free version of WeVideo does limit the video quality, size, and number of exports one can do in a month, but they do offer tiered payment plans for more avid video editors.

**update**- WeVideo keeps getting better- their new UI keeps getting better... and you can download the app straight to Google Drive!
