Today, Instagram announced that the length of the videos you can create with the app will increase from fifteen seconds to one minute. They said:

Longer video on Instagram begins rolling out today and will be available for everyone in the coming months.

I have students create Instagram videos both in my English Language Learner and IB Theory of Knowledge classes (you can see lots of examples at The Best Resources For Learning To Use The Video Apps “Vine” & Instagram).

Having the “stop motion” so easily available with its video app makes it a great tool, and the increased length of time only increases the educational possibilities!
