ChatGPT might be the first thing you think of when you read about AI today, but there have been plenty of other AI tools before it. Such a tool is Lumen5. Lumen5 is a tool that will produce a video for you based on your written work. To create a video with Lumen5 you can enter the URL of your published work or submit the text of an article you have written. Lumen5 will then select highlights of your writing to feature in a video. The video will always start with the title of your article. From there, it will use any subtitles or section titles you have in your article to create sections of your video. If you don’t have subtitles or section titles in your article, Lumen5 will attempt to extract the keywords or phrases from each paragraph. Watch my demo below to see how easy it is to use Lumen5.

Anyone with a written list of announcements can use Lumen5 to quickly create a video summary that is then shared on your school’s website or projected onto screens in common areas like your school’s cafeterias.
