How I made this video:


I used Adobe Premiere to edit this video, although almost all of the sequences could be created in a simpler program like iMovie.


Sample music tracks were downloaded from and stock video clips from Shutterstock. I recorded the narration myself directly in Premiere.


Screen captures of the mobile Cleveland Historical site were created using and captured with the screen recording feature in Quicktime.


This simple web site was created free on to house the video (from Youtube) and provide a place for the transcript to be included.
