A really useful tool is Moviemaker. This is available on every computer. Go to programs>accessories>moviemaker.

You can upload pictures and video clips and link these together with captions and then add music or narrate the story. Here’s how Movie Maker works in detail.

Here is a tutorial in making a movie using Movie Maker. You can see that it uses a music soundtrack and captions for conveying the information. So in this case it is a reading tool. If you want to record your own sound track you can do this and add it to the movie to turn it into a listening resource.

You can see an example of a Movie that Irene made under the Listening section.
