Coming soon: The new WeVideo for Schools

June 23, 2019 / By

Exciting new things are happening at WeVideo for Schools! We’ve got something big in the works for educators and students, coming your way.

The team has been hard at work creating a new WeVideo built for the classroom, made specifically with teacher and student workflows in mind.

Why get excited about the next-generation WeVideo for Schools? We think it will help solve a lot of teacher pain points by making classroom workflow and project management easier. For students, we’re introducing a more streamlined video editor that makes it easier to focus on what’s really important: expressing creative ideas and demonstrating learning.

WeVideo Chief Education Officer, Dr. Nathan Lang-Raad, says, “WeVideo believes in supporting students in their learning and growth from beginning to end. Rather than passively consuming media, we believe in actively creating it, and with the latest update, we’re making it even easier for teachers to create those opportunities for students.”

WeVideo is on a mission to empower students to discover their voice to make an impact in the world. “Students should be engaged in learning that is both meaningful to them and mirrors the world outside the classroom. With WeVideo, students see how their work impacts their life and those around them. We foster true creativity by balancing open exploration and expression of ideas with support and guidance,” says Dr. Lang-Raad.

So, what exactly is new in the upcoming version of WeVideo? It’s the same WeVideo you know and love, only better. Besides a fresh new look and feel, we’ve added some amazing things for both teachers and students. Here’s what’s new for teachers:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Key features that make it easy for teachers to add classes, manage students and organize classwork
  • Assign student projects directly in WeVideo
  • Easily review student work (both in-progress and completed)

  • A simplified, intuitive and student-friendly editor
  • A clear, dashboard view of assignments and due dates
  • Easy assignment submission; turn in work with one-click
