If you are a perfectionist editing may never end … don’t be too hard on yourself. It does not need to be perfect. You will find many recommendations on YouTube, but keep in mind if you are an educator video creation is likely a hobby, not a career.
I use Camtasia and Adobe Premiere depending on what I am doing. Camtasia has basic editing functions and is best for screen capture videos. Adobe Premiere is more advanced and recommended by many. You can look up instructions on YouTube or take a free course through https://www.lynda.com/ (paid for by eCampusOntario).
Other recommendations include
- Lumafusion for ios devices.
- iMovie included with any Mac computer.
- PowerDirector for Android.
- Splice for editing on an iPhone. Good for simple editing.
- Quick by GoPro good for montages. Has editable templates.
- DaVinci Resolve
Hitfilm Express is decent and DaVinci Resolve is also good (they both have free and paid versions). Especially for someone just starting out who doesn’t have the budget for the higher end choices. Also, free doesn’t mean easy to use, it only means free. 🤓

There’s some free options available, but none that I’ve used that I’d say are “good.”

Try Hitfilm. It’s the only free one I’d recommend
